Arabica specialty coffee; Tanzania from the village of Mahenge.
The Sochaccy coffee roastery is home to coffee from Tanzania's southwestern Ruvuma region. The region is named after the Rovuma River basin, which cuts through Tanzania, Mozambique and Malawi. The region stretches between Lake Nyassa and the Mbwemburu River basin, and is part of the Great Rift of Africa. Its high altitude, mineral-rich volcanic soil, and tropical climate make it an ideal area for growing specialty coffee.
The coffee we offer at Sochaccy.co coffee shop comes from a cooperative of farmers called Mahenge AMCOS (Agriculture Marketing Cooperative Society) based in Mbinga. Agricultural cooperatives in Africa allow small family farms to unite forces in building the infrastructure necessary for coffee processing and export. On the one hand, the cooperative raises funds for the construction of processing stations called wet mills, and on the other, it ensures the development of its members' skills by providing ongoing training to farmers. The role of the cooperative continues to grow and care for the farmers is expanding; in 2013 AMCOS cooperative built a school in Mahenge for the children of its members, in addition, it has also succeeded in establishing a health care subsidy system.
The coffee processing point in Mahenge is designed to enable the removal of the berry skins from the coffee plant, immediately after harvesting, so that the freshly harvested green coffee is ready for export quite quickly. Green coffee can be roasted up to 10-15 years after harvest, although the best coffee is from the last harvest. Green coffee ages and loses flavor and aroma as it ages, just like any agricultural product. Coffee aged for many years also means a lower price. Coffee is processed as close as possible to where it is grown and roasted as close as possible to the final consumer. That is why at Sochaccy Coffee Roastery we roast coffee on the day of shipment.
AMCOS cooperative was established in 1963. And quite quickly it received a Fair Trade certificate. Currently the cooperative already has 540 members who grow coffee on their plantations, which average size is only 1-1.5 hectares. The coffee plants are planted between banana trees, which give them the necessary shade on the one hand, and provide shelter for numerous species of birds on the other. No chemicals or artificial fertilizers are used during cultivation. The coffee berries are picked by hand, which already at this stage allows a preliminary sorting, selecting only the ripest fruits. The plantations are located at an altitude of 1,700 to 1,860 meters above sea level. After harvesting, the coffee is processed using the Fully Washed method. The coffee comes from the harvest between June and November 2020, and was sun dried for 13 to 16 days after washing.
The coffee greets us with an intense sweet aroma, the flavor bouquet starts with intense floral notes, a delicate clean citrus acidity with a touch of black currant. The coffee is perfect for classic espresso in a espresso machine, but also offers excellent qualities when prepared in a coffee machine.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is fresh-roasted coffee?
A coffee is considered freshly roasted when a minimum of 24 hours from the roasting date has elapsed but no more than 14 days. Coffee after roasting needs 24 hours to rest-decompress, after 14 days from the date of roasting there is a loss of nearly 20% of aroma intensity as well as flavor.
Taste notes what is it?
It is the natural taste of coffee, obtained only by roasting coffee without any artificial additives or preservatives. The richness of coffee is precisely in the variety of coffee flavors coming from different regions of the world.
Which coffee roasting to choose?
If you prepare coffee with alternative methods (AeroPress, Drip, dripper, V60, Chemex...) be sure to try coffee in light roast.
If you are preparing coffee in a pressurized, pour-over or coffee maker, try coffee in medium roast; it is the most versatile coffee roast.
If you are preparing coffee in a pot, try a dark roast.
Coffee roasted light contains more caffeine than coffee roasted medium or dark. There are usually more noticeable notes of citrus, flowers.
If you're just getting started with fresh-roasted coffees or this particular coffee, it's best to try it in a medium roast for the first time. The medium roast is the most balanced roast between citrus acidity and pronounced chocolate, cocoa.
Dark roast, often associated with Italian roasting, is the exposure of cocoa, dark chocolate notes in coffee; less noticeable are fruit, floral notes. Dark-roasted coffee contains the least caffeine of all 3 roasts.
Which coffee roast has the most caffeine?
The amount of caffeine in coffee depends not only on the roasting method, but also on the type of coffee and how it is prepared. However, it is generally believed that light-roasted coffee contains slightly more caffeine than dark-roasted coffee.
Light-roasted coffee retains most of the natural flavors and aromas of the coffee bean, but has more oils and phenolic compounds, which are removed during further roasting. Therefore, in light-roasted coffee, caffeine remains in greater amounts.
What is dark coffee roasting?
Dark roasting is the process of roasting coffee beans, which leads to a very dark color and intense flavor. Coffee beans are roasted for a longer time and at a higher temperature than in light or medium roasting.
During dark roasting, the sugars in the coffee beans are caramelized and the acidity of the beans is almost completely removed. As a result, dark roast coffee has an intense, bitter flavor with notes of chocolate, caramel and nuts.
Dark roast coffee is popular in some regions, such as Italy, where dark roast espresso is often preferred. However, due to its intense taste and lack of subtle flavors, it is not the preferred roasting method for some coffee lovers.
What is a medium coffee roast?
Medium roasting (American, City Roast Medium, Regular Roast, City Roast, Breakfast Roast)is a coffee bean roasting process that lies between light and dark roasting. During medium roasting, the beans are roasted for about 10-15 minutes at a moderate temperature.
During this process, the sugars in the coffee beans begin to caramelize, which gives the coffee a sweet taste, and the acidity of the beans is gently reduced. The beans gain more complex aromas, including nutty, floral and fruity notes.
Medium roast coffee is the most commonly preferred coffee roast by coffee lovers, as it preserves the subtle flavors of the beans while adding some sweetness and fullness of flavor. Medium-roast coffee is also popular in many cafes and restaurants because it has a balanced flavor and aroma that is enjoyed by a wide range of consumers.
What is a light coffee roast?
Light roasting (Cinnamon, New England, Light Roast, Light City, Half City) is a process of roasting coffee beans that leads to a light color and delicate flavor. During light roasting, the beans are subjected to a short roasting process (about 5-7 minutes) at a relatively low temperature. During this process, the sugars in the coffee beans begin to caramelize, but not as intensely as in dark roasting. Coffee from light roasting has a pronounced acidity and delicate, fruity and floral aromas. Light roast coffees are often preferred by coffee lovers who appreciate subtle, complex flavors and aromas. Such coffees are especially popular in Scandinavian countries, where light-roasted coffee is treated like a luxury product and is drunk in smaller quantities, but with better quality. However, due to its sour taste and mildness, light-roasted coffee is not liked by all coffee lovers. Light roast coffee is popular among lovers of alternative coffee preparation.
How much coffee to buy in a coffee roaster's store?
The amount of coffee you should buy from a coffee roaster depends on your personal preferences and needs.
If you drink coffee every day and like freshly roasted coffee, it's a good idea to buy enough to stock up for 2 weeks. It is recommended that you buy enough to avoid losing freshness.
One way to determine the right amount of coffee to buy is to calculate the average amount of coffee consumed per day or per week. Based on this information, you can determine how much coffee beans you need to buy from a roaster to stock up for the right amount of time.
If you are using a pressurized coffee maker with a grinder to prepare your coffee, it is a good idea to buy such a package of coffee (75g.,250g.,500g.,1,000g.) so that you can pour all the coffee into the bean container.
It is also worth considering your taste preferences and choosing the coffee that best suits your tastes. The Sochaccy.co store offers 75g coffee samples for purchase, allowing you to try different flavors and choose your favorite type.
Ultimately, the amount of coffee you should buy from the roaster depends on your individual preferences and needs, but it's worth buying enough to avoid constantly going to the store for fresh coffee.
Which coffee is better to buy - bean or ground?
The decision between bean and ground coffee depends on several factors.
First, bean coffee usually has a longer shelf life than ground coffee because the coffee beans retain their freshness and aroma longer. Therefore, if you want to enjoy the freshest coffee, it is best to buy coffee beans and grind them just before brewing.
Secondly, ground coffee is more convenient and faster to prepare because it does not require grinding before brewing. Therefore, if you don't have time to grind coffee before each brewing, ground coffee may be more suitable for you.
Third, ground coffee offers more control over the brewing process and allows you to adjust the grind thickness to suit your taste preferences. With ground coffee, the grind thickness has already been determined, which can affect the taste of the coffee.
In conclusion, the decision between bean and ground coffee depends on your individual preferences and needs. If you want freshness and control over the brewing process, it's better to choose bean coffee and grind it just before brewing. However, if you are looking for convenience and speed, ground coffee may be more suitable for you.
