We started the African Coffee Club because African coffee is unique in taste and under appreciated elsewhere. It’s one thing to ship you amazing coffee from all over the world; it’s quite another to take a deep dive into a part of the world that grows some of the most sought after coffee in the world - Africa. Keep in mind that Africa is HUGE - Africa is bigger than China, India, the contiguous U.S. and most of Europe—combined!
Thus, we have devoted ourselves to curating only the finest fair trade, single-origin coffee Africa has to offer. Lucky us! We believe that giving back is not a matter of pride or charity - it’s good business. Pay a fair price for the best beans and you are giving back in the best way possible.
