The crew at Zingerman's Coffee Company taste all sorts of beans from all over the world. One of their driving passions is bringing little known productions from small farmers back to coffee lovers here in the states. This month they're presenting coffee from the Mubuyu Farm in Zambia, the landlocked nation in southeastern Africa.
The Mubuyu Farm was founded by Willem Lublinkhof in 1971 and for most of its history produced wheat, soy, and other crops. In the early 2000s, the Lublinkhof family began exploring coffee production. From the beginning, the Lublinkhofs’ knew they wanted to produce high quality coffee and so they dedicated themselves to following best practices in all areas of production. All cherries are harvested by hand and only those that are bright red, glossy, and firm are picked.
We found this coffee delightful from beginning to end. It is a bright, crisp, elegant coffee that we thought would be perfect to wrap up the summer.
