Africa the land
of deserts, jungles, mountains, and diamonds, she is a continent full of beauty
and contrast. Archeologists call her the cradle of civilization. Indeed we
at Wilkinsons must back up this claim, at least as far as civilization is
concerned for Africa is the birth place of coffee.
In the region of Kaffa in the ancient land known as
Abyssinia a lowly goat herd is credited with
the discovery of coffee. Whether
the legend is true or not recent archeological
and botanical evidence place the origins of arabica coffee beans squarely in the
central plains of Abyssinia, known today as modern Ethiopia.
Come with us and discover the true cradle of
civilization. Treat your self to the original taste that has become a passion

Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe coffee is famous for its light body, and clean taste that is often described as having ‘citrus’ and ‘floral’ notes with a smooth winy finish. This delicious flavor is balanced out by its ‘earthy’ aroma; a by-product of their unique processing. Medium roasted, these uneven beans are a rare delight from east Africa.
Kenya Peaberry comes from exactly the same plants that produce the famous Kenya AA coffee. The difference is that these special beans pack a strong, flavoursome punch. Like the Kenya AA, the combination of fruit and spice notes still comes through but the difference is in the nutty finish. This coffee is for those who like Kenya AA but desire a bit more piquancy.
Kenya AA is probably the most well known of the ‘gourmet’ coffees. Prized for its acidity and bright touch to the palate, Kenya AA produces a complex and well rounded cup. The interesting light fruit notes (berry and citrus) combine with a touch of spice for a brew most often drunk black.
This coffee is also available in our American branch here.

roasts great strength of taste makes this continental an ideal coffee
base for a milky drink like a Latte.
Mocha Djimma, called the original coffee, produces a smooth, slight thick and velvety cup. The biscuity and earthy tones are a celebrated flavour of this classic.
