The Story

Map of Tanzania

In Tanzania, Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Societies (AMCOS) manage 95% of the country's coffee production. Small coffee producers must be registered to an AMCOS to qualify for support in production, processing, storage, transport, marketing and government aid. Wihout membership, their raw coffee would have no way of reaching the global market. 

The Hezya AMCOS has grown quickly to it's current membership of 295 members in the Mbozi region. In the 2022/2023 crop season, our friends at Genuine Origin, through their sister company Taylor Winch Tanzania, granted the Hezya AMCOS a loan so they can collectively wash and process their coffee cherries.  

This particular coffee is a peaberry - which means there's only one seed in the coffee cherry instead of two. You can read more about peaberries and what makes them so desirable over on our blog
