While much of Sustainable Harvest®’s supply chain spent the second weekend of October in Panama for the 12th annual Let’s Talk Coffee® supply-chain gathering, Malawi’s Mzuzu Coffee Planters Cooperative Union spent it another way: Winning big in competition.
The co-op took part in the 2014-15 Malawi Taste of Harvest Coffee Competition, presented by the African Fine Coffees Association (AFCA) in partnership with the Coffee Association of Malawi. Mzuzu Coffee Planters Cooperative Union won first place and placed in eight of the top 10 spots—view the full results of the competition here.
Mzuzu Union is a long-standing partner of Sustainable Harvest®. (Read a previous article about our relationship here.) The cooperative produces a unique coffee in flavor and style, with orange peel and sweet maple flavors and a buttery body. Mzuzu’s coffee will be available in our spot offerings early next year; check out a list of our currently available coffees here.
The Malawi Taste of Harvest Coffee Competition took place October 9-10 in Blantyre, Malawi.
