Direct trade, high-altitude coffee grown on an award-winning, private plantation in Zimbabwe. The Ashanti Farm's elevation is approx. 3600 ft above sea level. The coffee is planted in contour lines to stop soil erosion, and the ravines around the coffee fields are left in their natural state, providing sanctuary to wildlife.
Once the coffee beans are hand-picked and pulp removed from 'cherries', they are fermented in open air tanks, then washed and sun-dried for about three weeks.
After hulling, sorting, grading and 'cupping', the green beans are shipped directly to Canada to Ashanti's Roasting Facility in Thornbury, Ontario. The beans are hand-roasted in small batches fresh daily. Non-GMO, no additives, free of pesticides. Single origin. Fair trade. Hand Roast. Exclusively well priced.

ASHANTI WITH CARDAMOM
Recipe and Ideas © Wise Tea Garden®
To achieve the most fragrant, buttery cup with less caffeine, brew Medium Roast Ashanti in a similar way as a tea:
- Grind a small amount of beans finely into a powder, and put 2 teaspoons (2x15ml) into a cup (200ml).
- Boil fresh distilled water (the water should be fresh, not boiled previously). As soon as start to boil, remove from heat and let it cool for about 1.5-2 minutes (the temperature of water should be around 95℃).
- Pour the water over the coffee. Do not stir.
- Cover with a saucer, and wait patiently for about a minute.
- Remove saucer. Add freshly ground cardamom (seeds of 1 medium-large pod per 200ml cup) or please open a large cardamom pod, scoop seeds from the inside and add to the cup. Using a teaspoon slightly stir the brew, and enjoy the thick and rich in flavour coffee. Extra: Add 1/4 tea spoon of Organic Lemon Zest for a fully-balanced, superbly perfect cup.
Add Granulated Maple Sugar if you wish. Please replace Cardamom with Ceylon Cinnamon or any other spice of your choice, preferably Vanilla, Lavender or Coconut.
We do not suggest to add any spices with strong flavours or aroma such as cinnamon, turmeric, nutmeg, peppers to Medium Roast, but they can definitely be added to any Dark Roast.
