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...

Kenya Peaberry

Return to African coffees   The Peaberry is a unique coffee bean and is considered to be a flavorful if odd mutation. A standard coffee cherry contains two beans in the center. A Peaberry cherry contains only one slightly larger bean. These unique rounded beans are sifted out from the regular coffee beans during processing and are held in reserve because essentially the have all the flavor of two regular beans. Coffee brewed from these beans usually has a smooth, medium body but packs the flavor of a heavier, thicker brew.

Kenya Peaberry coffee is similar to Kenya AA in flavor with the exception of it’s black-current like finish. However this coffee is not for the faint of heart; possessing a very strong flavour and aroma it is often blended with milk for a unique and satisfying latte.
