African Coffee

Africa the land of deserts, jungles, mountains, and diamonds, she is a continent full of beauty and contrast. Archaeologists call her the cradle of civilization. Indeed we at Wilkinson’s 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 archaeological 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 Mocha (Djimma)
Mocha Djimma, called the original coffee, produces a smooth, slight thick and velvety cup. The biscuity and earthy tones are a celebrated flavour of this classic.
Kenya Peaberry
Kenya Peaberry comes from exactly the same plants that produce the famous Kenya AA coffee.  The difference is that these special beans pack a strong, flavoursome punch.  Like the Kenya AA, the combination of fruit and spice notes still comes through but the difference is in the nutty finish.  This coffee is for those who like Kenya AA but desire a bit more piquancy.
Kenya “AA”
Kenya AA is probably the most well known of the ‘gourmet’ coffees. Prized for its acidity and bright touch to the palate, Kenya AA produces a complex and well rounded cup. The interesting light fruit notes (berry and citrus) combine with a touch of spice for a brew most often drunk black.
