About Tanzania Kilimanjaro Kibo Farm Washed

Grown in the Hai District of Kilimanjaro Region, Kibo Farm was established in early 1900’s under the name of Tudaley Estates. In 1979 the farm was proud to welcome the Queen of England who visited and stayed on the farm.

In 2017 new investors purchased the farm with the intent of intercropping avocados, macadamia, and coffee. The farm name was changed to Kilimandsharo and Boloti.

Kilimanjaro works with the local authorities to carry out controlled trials on varieties and water management. These techniques and best practices are then dissipated to the local authorities and surrounding coffee communities.

About Tanzania

Tanzania produces between 30-40,000 metric tons of coffee per year (70% Arabica, 30% Robusta). The three main Arabica growing regions are in the North/Kilimanjaro, Mbeya and the Matengo Highlands (Mbinga).

More than 90% of Tanzania’s coffee is produced by 400,000 smallholder farmers. Larger estates are found in Arusha, Kilimanjaro and Mbeya regions.

The harvesting season in Tanzania usually lasts from July to December, though slightly earlier in the case of Mbeya. Green coffee is sold either through the Moshi auction or direct to buyers. Coffee is shipped to buyers out of the major ports of Dar es Salaam and Tanga.
