One of Zimbabwe's finest coffees, from the Salimba estate. Well-balanced, mid-range acidity, firm body, richness of flavor and an intrinsic East African aftertaste with bright notes. Zimbabwe coffees have been slow to come to market, as an unstable political climate was not ideal for moving coffee out of this land-locked nation to neighboring ports. But now that Salimba Estate is on our shores, we couldn't be happier! Like other African coffees, this coffee has a bit of a sharp acidity, like the wild coffees of Ethiopia. A medium roast makes this coffee's bouquet really shine.Kaffe Magnum Opus really started as an aroma in 1955 or so, in an A and P store in East Rockaway, Long Island. Bob Johnson, the person who started Kaffe Magnum Opus was then only 10, but had the enviable task of grinding the coffee for his parents' home use. "I always remember the aroma", says Bob. "That aroma hit me again in the Galleria Mall in Philadelphia in 1989 and I decided there and then to change my life completely." After 23 years in finance, Bob followed the aroma into the coffee business and started Kaffe Magnum Opus in 1991, as a store - Coffee Time - in, Vineland, New Jersey. The cafe building became the Headquarters and roasting plant for Kaffe Magnum Opus in 1996 when Kaffe Magnum Opus emerged. Freshness is king in the coffee business and Kaffe Magnum Opus only roasts to order. Even in its new facility with larger roasting equipment, the focus is on roasting batches. This insures freshness in every delicious, aromatic cup.
