Mara, Tanzania

In Tanzania, distances are vast; the Mara region is a stone’s throw from the Kenyan districts of Migori, Trans Mara and Kisiit, south lies the Serengeti, and more than 1200 km of dry dusty roads stretch between Mara district and the port of Dar Es Salaam. However, the clean, fresh, high-grown coffee from this region worth the distance it must travel: complex, savory sweet--reminiscent of great Kenyan coffee yet with a unique terroir of its own. Most coffee farming is the realm of smallholders who tend their trees and ultimately market their beans via auction or direct sales.

Besides growing some really special coffee, the Mara district is home to the famous Serengeti National Park, a World Heritage site complete with over a million wildebeest, plus hundreds of thousands of zebra and gazelle.
