Malawi is a tiny, landlocked nation in southeast Africa, bordered by Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique. The water you see in the picture above is Lake Malawi and, if you want to get some serious wanderlust, do a Google Image Search for Lake Malawi--you'll be checking flight prices in no time.
One of the world's least developed nations, Malawi is predominantly agricultural with tobacco as its primary crop. Other crops of note include sugarcane, sorghum cotton, and of course, coffee.
Malawi is one of the southernmost growing regions of coffee in Africa and though its production is small, the coffee--especially this crop--is exceptional.
In the cup you'll find a coffee that is most similar, in characteristics, to Kenyan coffees as opposed to the brighter coffees of Ethiopia or Tanzanian. The Malawi has a round, melon like body with floral notes of honey and honeydew melon. The finish is clean and sweet and it begs you to have another cup.
We love this coffee and will roast it as long as we can get it!
