About this Specialty Coffee

One of the parent species of Arabica, Coffea Eugenioides is a coffee with great potential, some of its specific characteristics include:

  • First described in 1907
  • Originated across East Africa (e.g., Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo, western Kenya, and Tanzania)
  • A diploid parent of C. Arabica
  • Smaller than Arabica in growth height.
  • This coffee species was reserved only for local consumption.

Recently, C. Eugenioides was rediscovered by the coffee industry and has even been tested and evaluated at competitions. Its flavor profile is described as incredibly sweet with many tea-like flavors. However, the coffee is mostly characterized by malic instead of citric acidity, which makes it much softer than Arabica coffee.

This abandoned coffee species challenges what we know as coffee today, it is unlike anything we've ever tasted. Our natural-process Eugenioides was rescued and cultivated by Finca Inmaculada in Pichinde Colombia situated at 1,900-2,000 MASL on the easternmost part of the Northern Andes. Eugenioides has its own unique brand of flavors. Indigenous to the highlands of East Africa, including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, and western Tanzania. It has a really low caffeine content, so bitterness is eliminated. It's very sweet and easy to drink with a remarkable flavor — it is truly a rare experience.
