Tanzania Maninga Estate Coffee


An absolute Gem from Tanzania. Slightly chocolaty nose before brewing. A great body for an African coffee, creamy and intense. The cup is clean, bright and well balanced. Lovely lingering, slightly gamey, aftertaste with undertones of dark chocolate.

Brews best though traditional filter methods, pour-over, chemex, v60 etc.

Not a traditional espresso coffee but it will throw out some very interesting flavours if you are willing to give it a try. The chocolate notes intensify and you'll get lots more acidity. If acidity in espresso is not your thing then we wouldn't recommend it.

About Tanzania

Tanzania is located in East Africa, bordering a multitude of different countries, including but not limited to Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. Due to the size of this African nation, it is linguistically, culturally and geographically diverse. The northern highlands, surrounding Kilimanjaro and bordering Kenya are temperate and vegetative. The central region is dry, and sparse with the Southern highlands bordering Malawi to the south a haven for agricultural development.

Tourism provides much needed foreign exchange earnings as does the export of Sugar, Tea, Tobacco and Coffee. With substantial Italian investment, Tanzania now has a fledgling wine industry to add to its economically diverse GDP.

About Tanzania Coffee

Coffee was first introduced to Tanzania in the 16th century, although this was the Robusta varietal. The more desirable Arabica variant arrived in the 19th Century, brought by German missionary colonisers.

    I absolutely love this coffee - loads of flavour and just strong enough to mean you can have a few cups a day! It's replaced Yirgacheffe as my favourite brew!

    Lovely in an Aeropress

    Published by Craig on 20th Nov 2017

    Very impressive. Full-bodied and complex, without being too acidic. We had it in the Aeropress, and we usually prioritise new coffees, but we ordered two batches of this.

    Not to my tastes

    A little bitter, and without the aromatic notes of some other pumphreys coffees for espresso making

    Deliciously Rich!

    I love this coffee - it's my favourite! Lovely vanilla notes with rich underbelly of burnt toffee infused with chocolate. It doesn't get much better than this!
