Shiwanda Estate has a long history in Mbozi, Mbeya – 290 acres, deep in the corner of Southwest Tanzania. In order to ensure soil fertility, Shiwanda Estate uses organic compost and manure and engages in a host of other good agricultural processes that seek to organically maintain the soil at optimal fertility.

The farm’s washing station is impressive by any standards: it is also one of the most impressively equipped and maintained in the region. During the harvest, coffee is selectively hand-picked by a team of local pickers (many of whom return to work on the farm annually) and delivered to the washing station within 8 hours of harvest. High standards of processing & drying assure a top quality coffee.
