The Mwampalala AMCOS (fun name, right?) is located in the Mbeya region of Tanzania. This cooperative represents more than 100 members and was founded in 2018. Throughout the harvest season, smallholder producing members pick only ripe cherries and deliver them to the washing station daily. Upon arrival, the cherries are sorted, pulped within 8 hours, soaked for an average period of 24 hours before being washed and placed on raised beds to dry for 7-14 days depending on the weather conditions during that time.
Microlots from Tanzania are traceable to the washing station level and are selected basis their cup quality. Due to the small average farm size, many producers (especially in the South) are members of AMCOS, Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Societies, which share centralized cherry delivery and processing stations. The coffees at these receiving points are blended together and sorted before being separated by quality, and microlot selections represent the highest-scoring lots differentiated from the larger day lots.
