Amabala Yasuma Zambia: Taste test rarity No. 3 in 2021 from Tchibo

AdvertisingThanks to


many high plateaus and a mild, tropical climate, Zambia has good conditions for coffee cultivation. The country in southern Africa is not one of the major coffee exporters, and cultivation there only gained important economic significance in the 1980s.

However, the majority of coffee consumers have probably never had a cup of coffee from Zambia. This can now be made up for with Tchibo’s Rarity No. 3/2021.

What does the supplier say about the coffee?

The beans for the rarity Amabala Yasuma Zambia come from the Kateshi Estate farm, which was one of the first in the country and is now known for empowering women. Kateshi Estate is located in the north of the country at an altitude of between 1,350 meters and 1,500 meters.

According to Tchibo, the coffee of the Catimor variety is hand-picked, washed after harvesting and sun-dried. The supplier describes the taste as complex with notes of caramel, nougat, coconut and pomegranate.

On Tchibo’s in-house intensity scale, the Amabala Yasuma Zambia gets 4 out of 6 beans. In acidity, it’s 3 out of 6 beans, in body it’s 5 out of 6 beans, and in roastiness it’s 3 three 6 beans. The aroma wheel shows an emphasis on sweet impressions.

Our taste test

When sniffing the freshly opened package, I notice sweet notes reminiscent of caramel and nougat, in addition to fruity-berry impressions. The scent is pleasantly intense.

With the hot drink, I notice a fruity scent that I find difficult to classify. This could have to do with the notes of pomegranate promised by the manufacturer. After reading the text on the packaging, I can even bring myself to notice a faint presence of coconut. Mixed in with that is a slightly tart note.

As a fully-automatic lungo, Amabala Yasuma Zambia is very fruity and distinctly tart. The fruity components are both sweet and sour. However, the sweetish impressions predominate overall, because after a moment the caramel and nougat notes also become noticeable. The coffee comes across as soft.

Only in the aftertaste does a slightly sharp note of roasted aromas appear. A few minutes later, the (really remarkably long-lasting) aftertaste transforms and the caramel and coconut notes are perceptible again.

I recommend letting the Amabala Yasuma Zambia as a lungo cool down a bit before drinking, as the coffee then has a more balanced taste.

I cannot recommend this rarity for preparation as an espresso, because both the acidic and the tart notes are clearly too strong


I cannot recommend this rarity for preparation with an electric filter coffee machine.

ity 3/2021, but I would advise not to be too sparing with the coffee grounds, but rather to use a little more than usual. Otherwise, the coffee seems a bit too thin, at least for my taste. Compared to the lungo from the fully automatic machine, the filter coffee is much less fruity/acidic, but also less intense in flavor.

The fruity notes are still present, but in this moderate form they will meet with more approval. The tart notes go very well with it. However, I miss the sweet impressions that I could taste in the lungo from the fully automatic machine. There is hardly any of that in the drink from the electric filter coffee maker.

Already the stronger (tart, fruity and spicy) aroma suggests that this coffee has more to offer in terms of taste when prepared using a coffee pot than the coffee from the electric filter coffee machine. It tastes more aromatic, significantly more intense. However, one should like such strongly pronounced fruity-tart aromas. The taste is simply completely different from that of standard supermarket coffee. Of course, the latter is not only true when prepared with the stamp pot, but the intensity of the impressions makes it very noticeable.

Price during test period

Buyers of Tchibo’s Rarities are used to spending more than for typical supermarket blends. However, the price of 13.98 euros per pound is significantly higher than the average price for this product line. In part, this could be due to increased world market prices, which Tchibo recently took as an opportunity to raise the prices of numerous coffee products. I am curious to see what prices the supplier will call for the next rarities.

The Amabala Yasuma Zambia is not a coffee that will excite the average coffee drinker from the first s


For that, it deviates too much from the “standard taste” of inexpensive blends. In my experience, it is precisely the fruity notes that I appreciate so much that irritate – especially if you do not expect them or are not looking forward to them.

In recent years, I have tasted just about every rarity from Tchibo. I like most of them very much. In a comparison, the bar hangs accordingly high. Although I drink them with pleasure – especially when prepared with the stamp pot – the Amabala Yasuma Zambia rarity would take one of the lower places in a ranking of all rarities already tasted. After all, it scores with a particularly independent and complex flavor profile.
