Limited Release - Zambia Kateshi Estate - Anaerobic Natural

  • Product Info

    Wild and crazy coffee with layers of flavor unlike many other coffees we've had! Starts off bright and tart like Pineapple which is followed with a boozy Rum-like sweetness before finishing off with notes of earthy Peat. 

    Anaerobic coffees are mostly heavy ferment offerings. They put the coffee cherries into sealed tanks for extended periods of time to create and control the tastes. Brings fruity natural coffees to a whole new level.

    Kateshi coffee estate, as one of the first coffee estates in Zambia, was established in 1972 close to Kateshi village. Back then, its wet processing facilities represented the heart of coffee production in northern Zambia having been the central mill for all coffee produced in the region. It is also award-winning; its natural and honey placing both 1st and 2nd in Zambia’s annual Taste of Harvest competition.

    Local Community is at the heart of the estate’s vision. Covoya provides daily access to safe drinking water to over 20,000 locals and supports 3 schools that provide 1,500+ students with primary and secondary education. Also on site is our health clinic, the only such facility for 30km. Complete with a pharmacy and delivery room, the clinic provides free basic healthcare to over 4,000 community members and sees an average of 95 visitors per day.

    Kateshi has been recognized for boldly challenging gender stereotypes in Zambia, being the first and only coffee estate to employ women for traditionally male-dominated roles such as driving tractors, bull-dozers and road graders.
