Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge is hidden amongst one of Tanzania’s oldest and largest coffee plantations, the Burka Coffee Estate, established in 1899 by German settlers and purchased much later by a group of Swiss investors in 1929. The Estate manages 342 HA of Arabica coffee, with which they have adopted an active and profound corporate responsibility, while maintaining the consistent quality that makes Burka Coffee Estates a trusted speciality coffee producer. The name Burka is derived from the springs found on the farm, providing water for irrigation as well as the local communities. The Northern Tanzania Arabica coffee produced from this estate fetches a premium on the world market and is highly sought after by Japanese clients as well as European and US markets.
