Zambia: Natural Gold Isanya Estate
Peach, Dried Blueberry, and Lavendar
Farm & Producer Info:
The Olam Coffee Estate Company in Zambia was started in 2012. It is both the largest coffee producer in Zambia and now the largest employer in the country. For the Natural-processed ‘Gold’ coffees, the best cherries are carefully selected with double handpicking (ensuring a consistency of over 98% of fully formed red ripe cherries) before being dried on raised beds. The cherries are spread across the beds in thin layers to ensure even drying, and regularly turned over a period of 3 to 4 weeks.
