Tanzania Glanmalure Honey Espresso

Every so often, you will see that we like to roast coffees outside of the “one-roast” zone, where (I/we feel that) light roast filters extract nicely as espresso. Due to the low acidity of Glanmalure Kent Honey, this coffee is great to showcase in espresso. It is a touch lighter than Formula 6 or Simply Brazil, however, it is a better fit for all things espresso and dare, I say it, milk too. The fruit is deep and intriguing, such a great drink.

Top Trumps

Farm: Ngila Estate.

Area: Arusha Northern Tanzania

Process: Honey (and shade-grown)

Varietal: Kent

Altitude: 1560-1640 Meters above sea level

Roast: Medium Espresso.


Please don’t worry if you can’t get close to our recipes. We have recently been using some different home coffee-making equipment and are mindful that these should be looked upon as guides, not gospel.

Espresso: 16-18g of coffee into 45-50g of coffee in a range of 28-35 seconds, at 93-94C. This should give you an intriguing, deeply fruity shot that is not typically sweet. Lots of currants and berries with a little black tea and cocoa. If you brew this even longer, you can get into the (arguably delicious) realms of umami.


6oz Drinks: Red and blackcurrants, with a touch of lactic sugars. Bright and juicy.

9oz drinks. 16-18g of coffee into 32-36g in 25-30 seconds. Less espresso liquid is often more in milk-based drinks. Blackcurrants and butterscotch.

Farm Info

The Ngila Estate is based on the slopes of the Ngorongoro crater and they have been growing coffee for over 100 years. Ngila has a set-aside 80 hectares of preserved rainforest that reaches 1800 meters above sea level. Ngila is certified by the Rainforest Alliance and uses natural insecticides, like Neem extract, and mineral fertilisers.

Glanmalure is the name of a specific area of Ngila and this is a well-developed lot from the main crop that is representative of the farm. Ngila determines the trees that they are going to pick using a Brix meter, picking is selective and sorting is very intensive.
