This wonderful coffee hails from the southern part of Tanzania--the areas of Mbeya and Ruvuma. Most of our purchases from Tanzania come from the south due to the high elevation and prime growing conditions.
Of the thousands of coffees we encounter in our search for the best, only a precious few are deemed exceptional enough to become Starbucks Reserve® coffees, offered only for limited times at select stores.
