Classic dark chocolate and coconut aromas waltz into flavor notes of cocoa and caramelized sugar along with apple cider and toasted walnut. Acidity is sweet and mellow for a balanced, approachable cup.

Meet Kateshi Estate

Kateshi Estate is owned by Olam Specialty coffee along with Ngoli and Luombe estates. Collectively these farms form the largest coffee estate in Zambia, complete with wet and dry mills located at Kateshi, on the Mafinga Plateau. Cherries from all three farms are blended to create this unique coffee from the home of “smoke that thunders,” the traditional name for Victoria Falls.

Workers are provided with housing on the estates, where there is also a 800-student school, a medical clinic, and a research center. As experimental farms, these estates employ over 3,000 people during harvest, and their innovation and meticulous processing are coaxing the best out of the coffee beans. These photos are from Olam and give just a glimpse of just how much time and effort go into making a special cup of coffee special.

Northern Provice, Zambia

Zambia may just be Africa's best kept coffee secret. In addition to climate and terroir, reliable cultivars, cutting edge farming techniques, and high quality processing standards combine to produce coffee with the classic bright fruit flavors, sparkling acidity, and sweet aftertaste for which well-balanced East African coffees are famous.

Landlocked and surrounded by eight other African countries, exporting coffee has been a challenge for Zambian coffee growers. However, large, centralized milling stations tend to make Zambian coffees clean and consistent, and word is spreading about this up-and-coming coffee origin.

Voyage Coffee Roasters

Voyage Coffee Roasters was birthed in beautiful Eugene, Oregon, in 2012 when Scott Van Den Elzen decided to take his home roasting hobby to the Willamette Valley and his daughter, Jessamyn, decided to join him. Four years later, they are still going strong, and the rest of the family—Gabriel, Peace, Ryland and Alyssa—pitch in with packaging, deliveries, sales, ideas, and anything else that needs doing!

Roast Master Scott focuses on small batches of outstanding coffees roasted on the dark side, both blends and single origins. He's so committed to bringing his family's enjoyment of coffee to each of his customers that Voyage offers both a medium and a dark roast of each coffee.
