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.
