This b-to-b brochure introduced Africa's fastest-growing speciality Arabica coffee producer
to American coffee roasters.
A series of plantation-specific
introduced coffees from a number of the company's estates.
Specialty coffees from an
especially capable business partner:
APC is the fastest-growing specialty Arabica coffee
producer in Africa. Our financial capacity and technological know-how
assures you of consistency and availability.
And we can doubly assure you of that, because we work
directly with you, the roaster.
We store a plentiful supply in American warehouses,
so you'll always have the right beans, at the right time, at
the right price. With APC, you can lock-in your marketing plans
and count on our fine specialty beans to be at your
door the moment you need them.
What's more, such dependability gives us
both more time to develop a distinctive marketing program with
you, one that takes full advantage of our distinctive beans.

We grow fine coffees.
We'd also like to help you
grow your business.
We promised ourselves we'd be able to honor our promises to you.
A number of years ago, several blue chip
investors and coffee-growing experts set out to bring multiple estates
together as one well-managed group - maintaining diversity while
making each of the estates more financially capable, as
well as socially responsible and sensitive to environmental concerns.
This group, African Plantations Corporation, now owns and operates
coffee and tea estates in several countries, with the
number of our holdings continuing to expand.
Each of our coffees has its own
distinctive qualities due to the unique microclimate of its
origin. However, all our coffees are alike in
the care and professionalism with which we produce, warehouse and
ship them. We sell only the coffees we ourselves grow, and have
spent the past several years perfecting our production methods and
quality assurance systems.
Perfect conditions for growing
APC estates enjoy the rare combination of elevation,
soil, shade, and water resources needed to produce coffee you love.
To ensure consistent quality and a predictable crop, each site
has an alternative source of water in case of an occasional drought.
Beans are hand-picked and sun-dried to
perfection. Our land and trees are treated with equally gentle
care. In fact, on one of our estates the coffee grows under the
watchful eyes of owls - whose pest control activities enable
reduced use of pesticides.
Technology used in the best tradition
Excellent yields from healthy plants are maximized through use
of modern agronomic techniques. We continually renew our older
plantings to maintain peak vigor and production, and when
we acquire new holdings, we immediately set about bringing
them up to the same high APC standards.
Our expert local managers have the
benefit of a plentiful work force and the latest technology.
APC's modern processing facilities consistently yield a clean, uniform supply
of beans ready for roasting. And soon we'll generate electricity
from our own sustainably grown timber, your further assurance of
economy and reliability.
Quality you can depend on,
from the company you can depend on
Every way you look at it, APC assures
you of a quality supply:
Irrigated estates - Our reliable water resources help us weather any occasional drought conditions.
Strong financial resources - From our ability to invest in production, to economies of scale, you can rely on us to be here and share the benefits of our strength.
US Inventory - We continually maintain a substantial inventory in our US warehouses, ready to ship on a moment's notice.
Rapid re-supply - Our estates' easy access to key African rail lines and the Indian Ocean facilitates maintenance of our US supply.
APC provides a pleasant experience in every way
Buying great coffee is a personal thing. Whether you buy spot, or on a long term contract at a guaranteed fixed price, APC is better positioned to address your widest range of needs and concerns - because we're both the grower and your US supplier.
We'll work with you closely, helping you present our coffees to your customers proudly and confidently.

Distinct bean flavors.
Each consistently unique.
APC's holdings include plantations in Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Tanzania.
Each APC estate is favored by a unique microclimate at an elevation of 3,500
or higher, with precisely the right combination of volcanic soil, temperature,
light, and rainfall. And at each estate we
nurture a coffee with its own distinct African personality.
