ICHESA Tanzania

With warm, humid summers and cool, dry winters, the subtropical highland climate of southwestern Tanzania's Mbeya region is ideal for growing coffee. This crop comes from a cooperative of family farmers in Mbozi, an area within Mbeya known for one of Tanzania's most popular tourist attractions: a 12 ton meteorite that fell to earth centuries ago.

These Ichesa coffee beans are peaberries, which are formed when the coffee cherry holds only one small, round seed instead of the usual two, flat sided seeds. This naturally occurring mutation appears in about 4 percent of coffee crops worldwide.
