Coffee from Chipunga, near Mzuzu


I finished drinking my souvenir of Malawi coffee last week.

I like the strong, rich flavour of Malawi coffee. It’s strong, it’s chocolatey, it’s earthy.

Each time I wonder how I could help to promote Malawi coffee and its unique taste in Europe. Rather than importing green beans, could we import roasted beans? Rather than mixing different kinds of beans, could we promote single origin coffee? How would I start? What do I need to consider?

finished drinking my packet of Chipunga coffee from Mzuzu in Malawi. I love the strong flavour.

Chipunga Coffee is grown at a high elevation in a cool, wet climate, on terraces of deep-brown-reddish free-draining soils.

There is a cool project where you can subscribe to receive different kinds of Malawi coffee. Currently, on a hiatus it seems, but please check out A Coffee Basket from Malawi.
