Africa Coffee


African coffee regions used by Wilkinson's of Norwich

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 the world over.Wilkinson's of Norwich presents to you the finest coffee from the Dark Continent...

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe

Return to Africa Coffee Yirga Cheffe, also spelled Yirgacheffe and Yergacheffe, is grown in the Sidamo region of Ethiopia. It is always produced as a ‘washed’ processed coffee and is considered by many to be the cream of Ethiopia’s crop. After the pulp is removed from the coffee cherry, the beans are soaked in fermentation tanks for up to 72 hours This process yields a coffee bean that has a higher acidity and a clean taste that is often called ‘winey’ or ‘floral’.Yirga Cheffe beans are noted for their light body, uneven appearance and an almost earthy aroma when brewed.
