About This Coffee

About This Coffee

The Concordia region is renowned for producing excellent coffee due to its agroclimatic conditions of the area – altitude, soils, biodiversity, and most importantly, the people, who through effort and care produce the “Oro Verde”.

The small farmers in this region have an advantage during the harvest season, as the weather is cold with little rain which leads to extended fermentation periods (12-17 hours), and longer drying periods where the coffee can be sun dried in their yards or on their zarandas. All these factors combined improves the cup quality of the region, where conservation of environment and sustainable coexistence between coffee producing activities and the flora and fauna surrounding them is most important.

History of Coffee in Zambia

The history of Zambian coffee seems familiar: men in Holy Orders of one sort or another arrive and plant seeds. But in the case of Zambia, missionaries did not introduce coffee farming until the 1950s. By the time commercial coffee production began in Zambia, the British had considerable experience in starting and operating coffee plantations in India, Kenya, and elsewhere. Planting coffee was an attempt to decrease a dependence on copper exports. Not surprisingly, the emphasis was on yield and production efficiencies. Plantations were large and orderly, grown in full sun on flat land, and processed in large wet mills wherever possible. Nevertheless Zambia made almost no appearance whatsoever on the world coffee stage until coffee was officially exported for the first time in 1985.

Growing Coffee in Zambia

The Northern province has the best conditions for arabica coffee cultivation in Zambia with its relative proximity to the equator and abundant altitude (Mafinga Hills being the highest point in the country at 2,300 masl). Most coffee grows from 1300 – 2300 masl. Zambia produces both washed and naturally processed coffee and has introduced some honey processing. A wide range of varieties including Catimor 129, Castillo, Java, and other trial varieties. Specialty grades are AAA, AA, AB and Peaberry.


Sample Roasting Guide

Consistency is key when sample roasting. Yet, your first crack won’t always happen at the same time, which makes it difficult to know when to end your roast. Use this guide to know when to discharge depending on how long it took you to reach first crack.
