In Swahili, twiga translates to giraffe. Twiga Coffee is as naturally African as the gentle giraffe.
In East Africa, where we started our coffee company, there is a tale that explains why giraffes have such long necks. The giraffes were attentive to inspiration from above, so God gave them long necks to make hearing messages from heaven easier.
Throughout East Africa, giraffes are regarded as spirit animals whose towering stature gives them a natural connection to things that are heavenly. The giraffe is thoroughly grounded to the physical world, but also in touch with things that are inspired, a delight to the senses, and that bring harmony to the world.
Our coffee is a lot like the giraffe. Twiga Coffee is a delight to the senses. It plays an instrumental role in supporting livelihoods and we try to stay in tune with things that are uplifting for our customers and our communities.
