Crown Crane Coffee Estate is a thriving coffee estate located on the beautiful Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania. Since 2007, we have been rehabbing this coffee estate back to a premier specialty coffee farm, like it once was decades ago.
The farm currently harvests Bourbon/ Kent and is experimenting in other types of coffee such as Geisha, Pacamara and Castillo. This year’s harvest featured coffee with a distinctive chocolate aspect with notes of caramel consisting of a smooth body and clean finish make this a very well rounded and pleasing coffee.
From the farm, we look out over the coffee plants with a view of the mountains and Lake Eyasi. This area has some of the most diverse African wildlife surrounding the farm. The Ngorongoro Crater is world renowned for the sights and boarders this farm at the top. Almost every type of animal with the exception of Giraffe can be seen at some point during the year if you look hard enough. This farm has the highest altitude of any farm in the region. At the top 6500 feet we have recently Planted Geisha and Pacamara plants. We currently have 205 acres of coffee planted on our way to 300.
Our new Penogas Wet Mill was installed three years ago where we specialize in micro lots and options for honey milled coffee.
