Imoja Iromba, Tanzania

It's difficult to get a decent Tanzanian coffee. I had some funny experiences with these. I wasn't surprised to see diversely composed beans.

The picture above shows them after selection.
They had a potential. Though, with a need of basic selection for every day brew. But in an acceptable range.


Name: Imoja Iromba
Roaster: TAP Coffee
Origin: Tanzania
Cultivar: Typica & Bourbon
Processing: Fully washed

Altitude: 1900 masl
Harvest: June - September

Fragrance: wafer, fruity (grape), vanilla, popcorn, peanut
Aroma: Grapefruit, sweet

An interesting flavour profile. One of the most enjoyable brews in V60. I wanted more and more.

Body medium to high. Pretty well balanced but delicate. Big flavours characteric for Kenyan or Ethiopian are mellowed. Low acidity, low sweetness. No big defects.

There's one thing to this coffee. It's losing freshness very quickly. As if it was underroasted. The last pour-overs were mild and flavourless.

All in all, I'm a big fan of Tanzanian coffee. It's a bit of a struggle to get high quality beans, but the game is worth.
