At Selah Organic we love our coffee and have searched for quality roasters to work with. Our favorite is a small family owned company out of Mead, CO who roasts premium coffee beans on Mondays and delivers on Tuesday providing you with a premium fresh roasted coffee bean. There is truly no comparison to a fresh roasted coffee bean (Superfood for 12 days) and a ground store bought coffee. When it comes to flavor this coffee does not disappoint.
In addition each bag supports small family farms and a growing trend of speciality coffee in Malawi. Here's a little about their coffee story.
Nestled into southern central Africa, the Republic of Malawi forms a landlocked strip of a plateau surrounded by Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania. It is one of the most densely populated countries in Africa with over 13 million people living in only 118,000 square kilometers, of which 20% is water. Coffee was introduced to Malawi in the late 1800's by the British and peaked in production at about 70,000 bags during the 1990's. Flowering happens from December to February, and a May to September harvest follows. Generally all coffees are washed, dried on raised beds, and exported in 60 kg jute bags.
