Item information

Description

Processing: Washed

Origin: Songwe, Tanzania

Producers: Lyula Amcos Cooperative

Altitude: 1600-1700m

This Tanzanian coffee was grown in the Songwe region by members of the Lyula Amcos Cooperative. Coffees grown by cooperative members are brought to the mill where they're pulped, washed, and sorted. Coffee is typically sorted by size and density, and very generally, the larger, denser beans taste best. While coffee grading varies by country, Tanzania's system is similar to Kenya's with AA and AB representing the largest bean sizes. We haven't sourced a lot of Tanzanian coffee in the past, but we were really stoked on these lots, and we hope to see more like them in the future!

Lyula AA is a coffee that reminds us of summer with bright, sweet flavors. A tart lemonade note is most prominent, with a pronounced amount of cane sugar sweetness to back it up. Also present is a juicy raspberry note, giving the cup two distinctly different tart flavors that play off of one another quite well. We love how sharp and acidic this coffee is, and we hope it brightens your day like it brightened ours. We'll certainly be keeping an eye out for more coffees from this region in the future!

I like it's structure and acidic balance. It's terrific as a hot cup. Surprisingly less good as a double strength Aeropress over ice, which is my typical ice coffee method.

Good acidic coffee

The smell was pretty boring IMO but the taste is pretty bright, sweet, and acidic. Overall I liked it a lot. Made with Chemex at 50g/700g.

Lyula AA

I found this coffee to be just ok, well balanced, but nothing to rave about. Moustache Coffee never disappoints, however.

Very good coffee

This was one of the best coffees I have received in a long time. Nice and light. Great morning coffee. Made in a french press.

Love me some Lemonade!

The sharp brightness of this coffee is balanced by the sweet note of cane sugar. Loved it, and I'm looking forward to trying more from this region!
