This coffee is grown near the town of Namadzi in the Southern Highlands of Malawi, an area better known for producing world-class teas. Coffee has been grown here only since the early 1980′s, but with increasing sophistication. The coffee trees, consisting mainly of Catimor and to a lesser extent SL 28 varietals, grow in clay loam at 1200 meters above sea level. The coffee farms all maintain programs to subsidize the cost of housing, health care and education for workers and their families.
