About This Coffee

Itete Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Society (AMCOS) was formed as a merger of four distinct groups in 2018. The cooperative serves 156 producers across several villages: Itete, Mlowo, Idunda, and Shinzingo. The cherries sourced from these smallholders thrive in clay loam soil, with plantings primarily consisting of Bourbon derivates: N 39 and KP 423.

Before cherries undergo pulping, meticulous sorting and quality control measures are implemented. The water used in the process is drawn from the Itete river, located approximately 2 kilometers away. After pulping, the parchment undergoes grading via washing channels. The parchment ferments for 24-36 hours, followed by thorough washing and soaking for 8-12 hours, with water changed out every 3 hours during soaking. Finally, the parchment is dried on tables for 7-10 days.

Notably, the land for the coffee processing unit (CPU) is owned by one of the Itete AMCOS members. As part of their future plans, the AMCOS aims to establish their own plot, complete with an office, warehouse, and CPU.

History of Coffee in Tanzania

Like other coffee growing regions in East Africa, it seems likely that coffee may have been known as a garden crop grown for barter and consumption (chewing rather than brewing) as early as the 16th century. German occupiers introduced commercial cultivation of at the end of the 19th century and coffee became an exported cash crop. Following WWI, the British took control of the region and the estate model was firmly established for coffee. During the transition years from British “protection” to independence, coffee farming cooperative began to emerge and would eventually dominate coffee production after formal independence in 1961. Today, 95% of coffee farmers are smallholders, growing coffee on less than 5 acres of land.

Growing Coffee in Tanzania

Exports from nearly every coffee growing country in Africa are lower now than they were twenty years ago. The most notable exception is Ethiopia, where coffee exports have reached 3 million bags, nearly double the number in 1997. Less dramatic, but nevertheless unique for Africa, is the strong and steady growth in Tanzania. Taking the average number of bags exported annually 2007-2017—to account for crop fluctuations—Tanzania experienced an increase of 11 percent over the previous 10 years. That might not seem like much until you consider that only two other African countries have experienced growth by the same measure, Ethiopia (37%) and Uganda (1%). Tanzania broke the million bags exported ceiling for the first time in 2009 and did it again in 2013. This increase in exports has coincided with a near 600 percent increase in domestic coffee consumption over twenty years. The only coffee growing country to experience a more dramatic increase is Vietnam, where dome
