African Coffees

Around 850 A.D. in the part of Africa now known as Ethiopia ( and arguably parts of Yemen), the Coffee bush was first discovered to have energizing properties, from its leaves to its fruit, and ultimately to its seed. Coffee was looked upon as a food in Ethiopia specifically, where whole ripe berries, beans and hulls, were crushed, and molded into food balls held in shape with fat. So it is this part of Africa that is the ‘birthplace’ of the coffee plant, from where all other plants can trace back their ‘roots”.

Rwanda
  • We have a limited supply of this fantastic award winning coffee from farmer Tegibanze Innocent and the KOAKAKA Co-Op in Southern Rwanda. This Bourbon varietal is grown between 1600 & 1900 meters above sea level ( ~5000-6000 feet). The altitude helped to create a delicate milk chocolate body with Apricot acidity & a sweet molasses and slightly nutty body.
