Best African Coffees to Try in 2023
Why African Coffee Is So Special
Although you can purchase delicious coffee from many areas around the world, you shouldn’t overlook the offerings from Africa. The continent offers diverse geography and biology, contributing to rich and distinct African coffee flavors.

Unlike many other coffee companies, we have specially hand selected our coffee farms and have fostered close relationships with the growers. This guarantees you receive the highest quality products whilst ensuring all ethical and sustainable standards have been met. For everyone from novices to coffee connoisseurs, the result is breathtaking flavors that will awaken your senses.
USDA Organic and Fairtrade Certified Ethiopia Sidamo
Ethiopia’s Sidamo province may very well be the birthplace of coffee, which makes this premium organic varietal a must-try for coffee lovers. Grown in the highlands, Sidamo coffee beans take longer to mature. This time allows the beans to absorb more nutrients, producing a richer flavor than similar Arabica coffees. Finally, pan roasting releases the beans' unique fruity and flowery tastes that you will love to savor.
USDA Organic and Fairtrade Certified Ethiopia Yirgacheffe
Yirgacheffe coffee offers another premium experience for the discerning coffee drinker. This organic variety comes from Oromia in Ethiopia, a highland region known for its fertile ground. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll enjoy Yirgacheffe coffee’s fruity berry flavor and its complementary fragrance. It pairs perfectly with this coffee’s bright acidity. It’s ideal for someone looking for a new medium-bodied coffee.
USDA Organic Certified Kenya Grade AA
When you’re unwilling to sacrifice quality, look no further than Twiga’s Grace AA coffee straight from Kenya. Few places in the world have elevations this high to allow for the slow growth that produces coffee as richly flavored as this. However, the volcanic Kenyan soils are equally important to this coffee’s distinguished honey and lime flavor profile and unique tropical aroma. Balanced acidity creates a moderate sensation for those who want a memorable coffee experience.
USDA Organic and Fairtrade Certified Rwanda
Rwanda is known as the “land of a thousand hills,” many of which happen to grow coffee amongst its vast natural forests inhabited by the world famous gorilla. After the coffee crop was introduced by missionaries in the early 1900s, coffee has become a critical part of the local economy, producing world class beans that have a distinguishing caramel and cinnamon flavor profile.
