A group of ambitious smallholder farmers from Cameroon, where robusta is the traditional coffee harvest, worked closely with a local cooperative to perfect the quality of their beans – and improve their livelihoods – by producing this outstanding arabica. Located in west central Africa, across the continent from where most of Africa’s finest coffees grow, Cameroon boasts a diverse geography – from deserts to rainforests to Mount Oku, where these beans thrive high in the rich volcanic soil.

Cameroon coffee beans are delicate and the roasting process creates a complex series of chemical changes, we have come to enjoy . In a period of eighteen minutes, these carefully selected green coffee beans losses moisture, changes color and then ‘pops’ open, much like a fine popcorn. At this point, the beans take shades of yellow and tan that quickly becomes lightly roasted coffee. We turn off the heat and tumble it with a gentle flow of air as the bean color darkens. Once we determine the degree of roast that is best suited for the customers, we let the beans further cool down before it is ready for packing.
