Taylor Winch (Tanzania) Ltd

Taylor Winch (Tanzania) Ltd is Volcafe's local company in Tanzania.

We are one of the top exporters in Tanzania. We source a majority of our coffee from the thousands of farmers we support and source the rest through the Tanzania Coffee Auction.

Growing regions: North, Mbinga, Mbeya
Brand Logo

Founded 1996

And part of Volcafe's 170+ year history.

We are located in Moshi, where we run a dry mill to help us source coffees from the Kilimanjaro region; in Mbeya and Mbinga, where we have a big sustainability footprint; and Dar es Salaam, where we focus on execution (processing, quality analysis, and export).

We run three quality labs which allow us to provide a range of qualities throughout the season, from regional blends to microlots. We cup through offers from our farmers, and we cup over 500 lots in preparation for the regional auctions every week during peak season (August - February typically). Our quality team then selects the right coffees and creates blends from estates and AMCOSes (cooperatives) based on the needs of our clients.

Our sustainability team works with the farmers conducting agronomy and coffee quality/processing trainings. Our trainings have helped the groups to improve and maintain their cup profile.
