About Smallholder producers of Tanzania, United Republic of

PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. is offering some mighty fine coffees from Tanzania this spring, like this one from the southern highlands where smallholders are catching the notice of specialty importers and roasters. This is great, because most coffee markets are in the north of the country. In order to sell there, Mbozi growers risk losing the traceability of their unique product, since coffees shipped north are usually mixed in with other lots and screened for size.

With the involvement of importers and roasters, and such nonprofit organizations as TechnoServe.org, things are looking better for these farmers, one step at a time. What can coffee lovers do to help that process? Sample these southern Tanzanian offerings! The more the demand for their coffees, the better the quality of life for these hard-working growers.

PT's Coffee Roasting Co.

Topeka Kansas, 1993: an unlikely place and time for one of the most groundbreaking Direct Trade coffee companies in the world to be founded, but that's just what Fred Polzin and Jeff Taylor did. PT's Coffee Roasting Co.'s slogan is, "Without the love, it's just coffee.", and they certainly live up to it. (In fact, Jeff married a Colombian coffee pro, Maritza, now Director of Quality Control for PT's).

PT's Coffee Roasting Co. has won many awards, including Roast Magazine's 2009 "Roaster of the Year" and a 2012 Good Food Award medal. Building on a history so solid, PT's is pushing into the future of the coffee industry with promise and momentum.
