MEDIUM ROAST | Dark Chocolate, Graham Cracker
Rated 92 points! (Coffee Review, May 2021). Our most versatile overall single origin coffee and the one we sample when someone wants to try their first Magnolia Coffee. This is the coffee served in most of our high end restaurant partners that want to serve one all-around exceptional coffee. It's delicious using any brew method including espresso and iced. One of our definite shining stars.
Tsekaka is both the language and the name of the tribal group that owns the Amuliba plantation, where this coffee comes from. The original plantation was started in the mid-1950’s by Norm Plant, an expatriate from Australia. Norm also planted the first trees on the neighboring Sigri Plantation, and was involved in the rapid growth of coffee cultivation in the Highlands region for years. The original plantation has grown significantly and was acquired by the Tsekaka clan in 1978. It currently functions as a coffee plantation and central processing facility for the region, with the owners purchasing cherries from local smallholders as well as growing their own.
