ROASTERS OF GOURMET AFRICAN COFFEE, TEA AND COCOA
Africa's Gift to the World.
KALDI AFRICA - HOME TO THE BEST OF AFRICAN COFFEE
Our African herds boy (Kaldi boy), noticing that when his flock nibbled on the bright red berries of a certain bush they
became more energetic (jumping goats), chewed on the fruit himself.
His exhilaration prompted him to bring the berries to the religious leaders in a nearby monastery, but they disapproved of their use and threw them into a fire, from which an enticing aroma billowed. The roasted beans were quickly raked from the embers, ground up, and dissolved in hot water, yielding the world's first cup of coffee. As the Myths holds and the rest is History.
Nigeria has always had a tea culture, but with the growing urban population and global network the need for coffee is set to grow exponentially to meet the demands of daily life. We are committed to continue setting the standards of how to prepare and enjoy a great cup of coffee, with passion and Enthusiasm.
Our coffee is sampled and selected from specific farms and through the coffee auction system from various African countries. We travel to the slopes of Mt. Kenya, the highlands of Ethiopia, Nigerian Mambilla Plateau, Cameroon, Uganda, Rwanda, DR Congo and all other coffee growing countries in Africa.
