Strawberry, Blood Orange, Dry Finish

Item information

Lyula AB

Item information

Songwe, Tanzania


Variety: N39, KT423

Processing: Washed

Origin: Songwe, Tanzania

Producers: Lyula Amcos Cooperative

Altitude: 1600-1700m

This is another lot that we purchased from the Lyula Amcos Cooperative out of Songwe, Tanzania. The cherries were grown by cooperative members before being pulped, washed, and dried on African raised beds. During the drying process, the lots at Lyula are repeatedly sorted by hand so that any imperfections can be removed. This helps the beans achieve a consistent moisture content, which leads to coffees that taste smoother and more cohesive. We were really impressed by the quality coming out of Lyula, and hope to see more stellar Tanzanian coffees headed our way soon.

Lyula AB is a crisp coffee with a decadent taste. The lead flavor is a luscious strawberry note that gives the cup some sweetness and fruit flavor. A note of blood orange adds some citrus taste as well as a touch of bitterness to the cup, something we don't often find in washed coffees. On top of that, Lyula AB is a very dry finishing coffee that leaves your palate clear, perfect to enjoy with breakfast or dessert. Lyula AB truly is one of the best Tanzanian coffees we've seen in a long time, and we're excited to share it with all of you.

Tasty, but citrus aftertaste

I don’t prefer coffees with a citrus taste. It’s a smooth coffee, but the citrus is unpleasant for me.

Hey Greg, Have you tried our Classic line up? Seeing as you don't like the citrus side of things the classics might be more up your alley? We focus on Chocolate and caramel flavor profiles (as opposed to the brighter more fruity coffees we tend to select for our standard shipments). You can select classics in the preferences section of your account if you think that would be your thing, thanks, Sean

One of the best coffees I’ve ever had

Title says it all. This is an excellent coffee, slightly acidic but very smooth. On top of that, my cousin was visiting today, does not care for straight coffee in general, and was blown away by this coffee. She drank the whole pot!

Citrusy, dry finish

Good coffee with a citrusy dry finish. Made a good cup that was good atart to finish. I usually go for deeper notes in coffee but this one was a pleasant change.

Fresh, but earthy

This coffee tasted very earthy/leafy to me. It grew on me after a while, but wasn’t my favorite

Great flavorful cup of java

I really enjoyed this coffee. Although I like the flavorful light and medium roasts, I also enjoy darker roasts. This coffee hit the spot being sent right after a lighter roast. I find it not too dark and its complex. I taste a hit of earthy fruitiness. Nice pick Mustache!

I can't believe how much I love this

I have always hated Tanzanian coffee in the past. Yet again moustache coffee club is breaking down origin stereotypes for me and showing me what each has to offer. The notes on this coffee are spot on and exactly the experience I had. Final note, chilled this coffee has a beautiful sweet flavor that you miss when hot. Please keep it up! Cheers y'all

Full-body, fruity flavor. Very nice.

Drip brew with a coarse grind and the fruity flavors really shined through. The finish was a bit more citrusy/bitter than dry in my first cup but that was probably due to the coarse grind. Overall, great! :)

Great nose, great flavor

Wonderful bean, would be 5-star but falls slightly flat at the backend. Would recommend, though.
