The land upon which the estate sits was previously four smaller farms, first cultivated by German settlers in the 1930s and 1940s. In the 1960s, the four farms were united as the Acacia Hills Estate and the estate has been producing coffee ever since: a total of over 50 years.
In 2007, Leon and Aideen Christianakis, local Tanzanian coffee farmers, partnered with an American roaster to purchase and upgrade the estate to focus on specialty coffee production. Today, Leon and Aideen incorporate a wide variety of practices, including soil analysis, managed shade and processing methods, into their production to ensure the highest quality possible.
- roots in Tanzania can be traced via oral history back to the Haya tribe of Northwest Tanzania in the 16th century. Following German and then British colonial rule, the Tanzanian coffee industry has undergone many transformations and adjustments in an effort to create the most equal, profitable and high-quality coffee possible.
