Malawi Pamwamba AA Coffee Beans
The coffee smells wonderful on brewing with a smooth medium acidity, peaking in a sweet sharp lemony flavour that sweetens into a honeyed finish.
The fully washed process encourages these flavour characteristics.
Coming from the rolling valleys of the Southern Thyolo district, the Malawi AA + Pamwamba is grown on steep slopes on patches between the indigenous forest.
Malawi Coffee Production
Rainfall is around 725mm to 2500mm, which falls on extremely fertile dolerite clay & alluvial soils.
Having a rotational programme that uproots and re-plants each field every seven to eight years gives the plantation an advantage; a very young crop.
This will increase the immunity of the plant to diseases and keep its flavour, as well as a chance to renew the soil frequently.
Harvesting Coffee in Malawi
The red cherries are all handpicked, with the same trees being re-picked 10 – 14 times over a single harvest season ensuring a good 85% AA+ grade return.
The varieties are a mixture of Catimor species, with a small percentage of SL28 coffee.
