Description

Mringa Estate is located on the southern slopes of Mt Meru close to the village of Usa River, which is near the city of Arusha in northern Tanzania. The farm borders and is bordered by Arusha National park, stretching to just a few kilometers from the entry gates. That’s 50 hectares of forested coffee farm, nestled in 50 square miles of national park.

Founded in the early 1900s by German colonial settlers, and later turned over to British settlers, the estate was nationalized during independence in 1961. The next fifty years saw various owners before 2008, when Di Banister and her family moved in; they run it to this day. One of their first additions was a drip irrigation system, a small washing station geared to quality, drying beds, shade nets and covered patios to extend drying times and manage the region’s erratic weather.
