Kilimanjaro often towers above the main house of APK. Mlama farm surrounds the main living quarters, an old german colonial house, on APK and is blanketed with massive tree giving shade to the growing coffee. Mlama is the last farm in APK to be harvested as the cherries ripen more slowly at the higher altitude. Workers walk through the gently rolling hills picking ripe cherries then delivering them to a centralized processing mill. Once washed the coffee is dried on raised african beds before having being transferred into a mechanical drier to complete the drying stage. In 2016 while visiting APK we cupped a variety of coffees from APK in 2016 with Boss, head of quality for the APK farms. Since that time, with lots of time and hard work the coffees produced from the five farms have increased substantially in quality. We get notes of cherry, orange zest, brown sugar, red apple, vanilla, and lemon from this complex coffee.
