The Mania of Tanzania

Quality: 
5

Tanzanian coffees can be a more balanced version of neighboring Kenya, which is loaded with top end, bright acidity. Tanzanias can also be high-toned, but the acidity is usually more integrated into the cup flavors, less dominant, while fruited notes and body play a greater role in the overall cup character.

Why Should You Know Giling Basah?

In the Bahasa language of Indonesia, Giling Basah means "wet hulled." That's not very exciting by any measure, but it refers to a part of the coffee process that is specific to Indonesia and creates a signature flavor. Wet-hulled coffees can have more body and lower acidity, but they also fall short of the sweetness and aroma uncovered by other methods.

If you have any interest in coffees from Indonesia, and are looking for some reason why you like them (or perhaps why you don't like them), it's worth your time to learn about Giling Basah.
