Roast Profile: Medium
Nyika Plateaux prefers a medium roast as this allow its delicate qualities to shine and enhance the coffee's bright acidity. We recommend a medium roast versus a dark roast as we find darker roasts reduce the floral and fruity notes of coffee beans. It takes years of practice to strike the correct roasting balance, and our customers tell us all that we need to hear!
Type: Whole Bean
The advantage of buying whole bean coffee is that the flavor is much stronger, and the subtle tastes of your specific type of bean are more noticeable. You will get that "fresh" quality everyone looks for in a delicious cup of coffee.
Region: Nyika Plateaux, Malawi
Malawi coffee is known for its full body and smooth and round taste with a soft flavor profile.
Malawi is an African country located to the west of Mozambique. Much of the coffee exported from Malawi is grown on big estates. The coffee from Malawi has been compared to Kenyan and Tanzanian coffees.
Shareholders in five Malawi regions have formed a coffee farmers trust called Mzuzu. Import stores online and the United States sometimes offer the green coffee beans from Malawi labeled as Mzuzu coffee.
You should store coffee beans at room temperature before brewing. To get the best results, store your beans in a dry, airtight container. When choosing a container and location for your favorite blend, it is essential to avoid air, moisture, heat, and light.
New research has established that drinking coffee can activate the body's fat-fighting defenses. This new research is a discovery that could have potentially significant implications in the battle against obesity and diabetes. According to researchers at the University of Nottingham, coffee may help stimulate our brown fat reserves, also known as brown adipose tissue, which plays a key role in how quickly we can burn calories.
We source our whole green coffee beans from farms across Africa that pay well above market value, which helps ensure ethically sustainable farming practices.
Our coffee is hand-picked, hand-washed, and then dried on raised beds as this allows the time necessary for the floral, sweet, and fruity notes to take hold.
