DISCOVER OUR ROASTS

Africa, and more specifically East Africa, produces some of the world’s most distinctive coffee, characterised by floral notes, fruitiness, wine tones and rich acidity. As far as possible we aim to capture and retain the natural taste profile of the bean, and achieve this by maintaining a medium roast across our range. 

MEDIUM

Our roast profile is primarily at a medium roast which we have picked specifically to enhance the natural notes of the bean.

medium - dark

For those who enjoy a little bit of a kick, we have included a medium-dark blend which provides greater strength in taste without compromising the natural frutiness of  the bean. 

DARK

Our dark roast is reserved specifically for our decaf coffee due to the sensitivity of the bean. A darker roast allows for caramelization, enhancing sweetness and retaining flavour.

OUR RANGE

Our range includes a mix of single origin coffees as well as blends, with our flavoured coffees providing a unique and aromatic twist on our traditional blends.
