Materuni is the home of the Chagga clan is as yet a true tribal village this beguiling spot is only 15 km far from Moshi Town and is the last town before the Kilimanjaro National Park.Coffee is Tanzania’s biggest export crop, sold everywhere throughout the world in general stores, Starbucks, and little scale cafés. Tanzanian arabica is known for its full body, particular acidity, and rich flavor. On a visit in the lower regions of Mount Kilimanjaro, you can see where coffee originates from: how the beans are grown, harvested, roasted, and brewed. You will even have the capacity to taste your own fresh cup.
Start your mini-adventure with the short but fascinating drive from Moshi up the lush slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro to the village of Materuni, approximately 1,800 m above sea level. You’ll visit a coffee farm and learn about how coffee is grown, harvested and processed, and you’ll try your hand at roasting and preparing a fresh cup of coffee the Chagga way. After a delightful coffee break (so much better than the ones at work!) you’ll take a beautiful 45-minute hike through the hills and valleys en route to the Materuni Falls. You’ll pass through banana and coffee plantations, up and down mini-valleys, across ridges and through narrow splashing rivulets. The mountain waters fall straight down in a shimmering curtain to splash in the rippling pool where you can float, take a swim and chill out – literally, as these are pure mountain waters and not yet heated by the sun. But it’ll be welcome after your hike, we bet.
