Sourced from an estate located in the Karatu district, Tanzania. The lowest and highest elevations in all of Africa. The floor of Lake Tanganyika (352 m below sea level) and Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895 m above sea level) are both located in Tanzania. The Karatu estate is located between these commanding landmarks, with 250 acres of coffee cultivated on the rim of the Ngorongoro crater - the largest unbroken caldera in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. More than 25,000 wild animals, including the largest population of lions, make their home within the crater walls.
