In the Iyula village, coffee was first produced in 1938. The seeds were brought by the great-grandfather Mchina, called 'the Secretary,' who got the seeds from missionaries in the Rungwe District. Today over 200 individual farmers deliver ripe coffee cherries from their nearby farms, the average size being 0.5-1 hectare.
Delicate, elegant, and complex. The aroma reminds us of lime and marshmallow, while the acidity is citrusy and sweet.
