Roasting their coffee with locally sourced cork wood creates a unique experience with each cup. After trying it ourselves, we wanted to share it with you.
Sao Tomé Coffee
Sao Tome is a very smooth, well-balanced coffee with an outstanding medium-body flavor. The slow roasting process creates a subtle smokiness with notes of woodiness and a lingering floral undertone. This is a very unique coffee and easy to enjoy!
History of Sao Tome and Príncipe
Sao Tome is a small but very fertile tropical island off the coast of Africa. In the 1400’s early Portuguese explorers discovered the island and utilized it as a base to trade with the mainland. The first settlers realized the excellent volcanic soil was perfect for agricultural expansion, which was sugarcane early on. In the early 19th century, they introduced coffee and cacao to the island. Today, Sao Tomé is known for producing some of the finest cacao, coffees and is known as Africa’s “Heaven on Earth,” according to CNN travel. The majority of the coffee grown in Sao Tomé is the Robusta variety. Still, small micro-lot farmers are producing exceptional Arabica coffee on the island, which we are providing in our limited release.
