I first visited Mondul Estate of Tanzania in 2010, and soon after had the privilege of meeting the co-op director, Edwin Agasso. Edwin has devoted his life to discerning specialty coffee, and this I have witnessed first-hand as we’ve cupped many coffees together in his lab. Edwin is one of the vital reasons Mondul Estate continues to improve each and every season. Edwin helps ensure Modul Estate continues to upgrade every step of the process from seed to cup. This was clear to me on my visits — from the seeds they plant, working conditions for the workers, standards of coffee control, and overall milling operations.
