The origin of coffee!
“It’s amazing how the world begins to change through the eyes of a cup of coffee.”
– Donna A. Favors.
Whatever the language, the word for coffee points to its birthplace: the ancient region of Ethiopia called Kaffa, a highland area with rich soil and cool temperatures that make for the perfect conditions to grow coffee arabica.
Ethiopia is a landlocked country within the eastern region of the African continent called the “Horn of Africa”. It is one of the oldest countries in existence and boasts a rich history, full of significant historical moments- including the discovery of coffee.
Africa is considered to be the birthplace of coffee. Ethiopia, in East Africa is the place where the coffee fruit was first found. African coffee is rich, strong, yet smooth with hints of fruity overtones The roast blend combines the finest Ugandan Arabica and Robusta beans, slow roasted to perfection Standing majestically at 2,100-meter above sea level, the famed Mt. Elgon is the seventeenth highest mountain in the continent of Africa making it the ideal place to grow beans for the most flavorful Arabica coffee. Some of the finest organic coffee beans are also grown on the slope of Mt. Rwenzori and The Albertine Region. It is this very coffee that is brought to you by Nick of Time. We bring the finest African coffees to you with its freshness intact from Uganda, kenya and Ethiopia.
Think of purchasing coffee is like getting fresh vegetables from the market. The roasting process releases the delicate aromatic compounds including fruity, floral, spice and earthy notes that gives coffee its distinctive flavor. Coffee smells so good because these molecules float in the air and into your nose. Unfortunately, coffee stales and loses these molecules over time and the resulting delightful flavors after only a few days. Most African coffee manufacturers take several precautions to maintain the freshness of coffee. Right from using the absolute latest roasting technology to innovative packaging, no stone is left unturned in providing the end-customer with coffee that has all its freshness preserved!
Coffee is about freshness, the fresher the better!
“No matter what historians claimed, BC really stood for “Before Coffee.”
