    This is a grade AA Plus highly sustainable Arabica coffee originating from Malawi's Mzuzu Cooperative. Producers who are a part of this cooperative are primarily located in the northern districts of Malawi.

    From the Mzuzu Cooperative website:

    "Our 3000 member farmers (25% women) have been growing coffee since early 1930s. The union comprises of 6 cooperatives: Misuku hill bordering Tanzania where over 50% of our coffee is produced at altitude of between 1700 to 2000m above sea level. Phoka Hills (altitude 1300 -2500m), Viphya hills (1200 – 1500m), Nkhatabay highlands overlooking Lake Malawi (altitude 1000 -2000m), South East Mzimba on the south of Viphya plateau (altitude 1200 to 1700m) and Ntchisi East (altitude of 1200-1800m).
