“Kahawa” means “coffee” in Swahili - and 1893 is when the Kahawa story begins. While coffee’s origins can be traced back to ancient forests in Ethiopia, coffee had to travel around the world before it made its way back to Africa, in 1893.

Did you know that coffee beans were originally discovered in Ethiopia?
This flavorful blend features beans sourced from two distinct (and equally-celebrated) regions within the country, Yirgacheffe and Guji. You'll have the best of both worlds in every sip.
The Yirgacheffe beans are sourced from Bedhatu Jibicho, who has been cultivating coffee on her farm since the 1950s. She is over 80 and is passing on the traditional techniques of processing Ethiopian coffee to the next generation.
The Guji beans are naturally-processed, which involves drying them in the sun while still inside of the coffee cherry. Natural processing imparts a fruity sweetness to the beans, and they can be easily enjoyed without sugar or milk.
Kenyan Single Origin
Kenyan coffee is among most celebrated in the world due to its complex flavor: full-bodied, bright, and inherently sweet. The unique genetic varieties grown in Kenya (SL-28, SL-34) were specifically developed for the country's unique soil and micro-climate.Whether brewed hot or cold, the flavor of our Kenyan beans is sure to impress. We're proud to celebrate our home country with this delicious single-origin.
About Kahawa 1893 from Founder, Margaret Nyamumbo:
“Kahawa” means “coffee” in Swahili - our language - and 1893 is when our story begins. While coffee’s origins can be traced back to ancient forests in Ethiopia, coffee had to travel around the world before it made its way back to Africa, in 1893.
My grandfather was a driver for the colonial government, and managed to get his hands on some seedlings to start his own coffee farm. Growing up in a community of coffee farmers, I witnessed the inequalities within the coffee industry - women provided 90% of the labor, but didn’t own land.
After studying abroad in the USA, I returned home with some ideas on how to bring Kenyan coffee to the world in a way that benefits our women farmers the most. I invite you to help me ensure that women farmers reap the rewards from their hard work.
