Origins & Growers

Much time is spent sourcing the coffees, working with companies who share the same ethos and are passionate about good coffee. The companies we work with are Mercanta The Coffee-Hunters (www.coffeehunter.com), The Coffee Shrub (www.coffeeshrub.com), Belco (www.cafe-vert.com) and Falcon Specialty (www.falconcoffees.com). The coffees are all exceptional, quality gourmet coffee, and I invite you to read, visit, and enjoy the deeper experience on offer at Tumbuka.
