African Coffees

The single most consumed beverage in the world.... is really an African Coffee. Tradition has it that Ethiopian shepherds discovered the beans when a sheep became more energetic after eating some of the fruit from a certain plant. When someone had the bright idea of roasting some of the seeds, they discovered the wonderful aroma that ensued, Coffee cravings, as we know them, were birthed. The high elevations and rolling hill country of East Africa provides a perfect tropical environment for thousands of micro-climates....this reality has allowed different strains of coffee to develop over the centuries that have yet to be tasted in America. This wonderful natural product now thrives in many other tropical countries of the African Continent, providing a foundation for countless numbers of communities' livelihoods. Some African coffees are renowned for their deep chocolate undertones and blackberry notes. Explore African coffees
