Available in 300g bags. Whole bean coffee. Craft blend of Arabica beans from Uganda, Ethiopia & Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The result? A truly unique, interesting and balanced cup of coffee.
This blend uses coffees from 3 different countries from Africa’s Great Rift Valley. This region is home to many skilled farmers of Arabica coffee beans, some of which provide the beautiful beans in this blend!
Did you know? Because coffee loves growing in the shade and hills are a perfect place for biodiversity, farmers can plant tall trees to grow over the shorter coffee bushes. This slows down the ripening time and brings out a more complex flavour! That’s why shade-grown coffee fetches premium prices on the world market, and also tastes better, of course. Because of the importance of sustainability in fair trade, it’s very common for fair trade coffee beans to be shade-grown—in fact, it is the rule, rather than the exception!
