Mimba Estate, located in Mbozi, Mbeya in Southwest Tanzania, was established in 1995 by Joseph Meila, a Swiss immigrant who arrived in Tanzania almost a decade earlier. Joseph initially planted roughly 100 hectares of the Bourbon varietal with some Kent on the land and over the past three decades, he has expanded production to cover the full 160 hectares of the farm. During harvest, Joseph employs over 150 men and women from the surrounding community to assist with the production and processing of the coffee on the estate.
This coffee is grown at around 1700m between July and October, fully washed and then sun-dried on raised beds.
