Marika’s Coffee started roasting coffee in 2007, focusing on high quality Zambian coffee and providing freshly roasted coffee for hospitality industry in Zambia. In 2015 the company moved under a new name; Peaberry Coffee Roasters Ltd. Marika’s Coffee is still our favorite 100% Zambian blend, but we have added the new Peaberry Coffee line for international coffees and we currently stock coffee from Ethiopia, Uganda, Costa Rica and Colombia as well as high quality decaffeinated coffee.
From a small roasting company we have developed to a solid local business providing freshly roasted coffee, coffee equipment, maintenance services and coffee training. We can provide coffee solutions from small cafés to international hotels, with customized services and high standard coffee and equipment. The founder Teija Lublinkhof is Coffee Quality Institute certified Q grader, this is highly respected certification in coffee tasting. She is also World Coffee events representative and head judge, with long experience in coffee industry.
We take an approach that direct trade is the way to go producing sustainable grown coffee. We buy from two farms in Zambia. We know that the farms we work with support gender equality, education and good health care with schools and clinics based at the farms. We take a great interest in quality from tree to cup and support the farms where they need expert advice on processing and coffee tasting. We also know that their agricultural practices are well developed, sustainable and transparent. Both Balmoral Farms and Munali Coffee are our long term partners.
Both farms export the coffee to USA, Europe and Japan, and reach every year high specialty scores with their coffees. We pay international level price for out coffee and we spend time tasting and selecting only the best quality. Our blend is 100% single origin Zambian coffee, expertly selected and roasted in our Lusaka based roasting plant.
