Africa is home to more than 6,000 different varieties of coffee and offers some of the most complex flavors in the world. Equal Exchange sources beans from three countries with storied histories and incredible coffee: Ethiopia, widely believed to be the birthplace of coffee; the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where a burgeoning coffee industry is quickly developing; and Uganda, where coffee trees grow on the stunning slopes of Mt. Elgon. African Roots Blend combines beans from these three spectacular locations, giving you a dynamic cup that brings together unique cultures and flavors.
Coffee trees depend on a strong and healthy root system in order to grow the fruit that gives us coffee beans. Similarly, a fruitful and progressive coffee culture depends on the nourishment and appreciation of cultural, historical and social roots. This blend is a tribute to and a celebration of the diversity and enormity of the African continent, the roots of growth and change, and the transformative nature of coffee.
