Kogi Wild Coffee is grown in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, an isolated mountain range separate from the Andes chain that runs through Colombia; grown by the indigenous Kogi people, who have lived in their mountain home in relative isolation since pre-Spanish Colombia. Guided by a belief system that revolves around their role as a guardians of the Earth, Kogi coffee is grown freely among the natural rainforest with elders conducting spiritual work to guide the process. The practises are considered some of the most sustainable in the world, with farmers washing and drying beans on site, and using mules to transport them up to ten hours away to the community processing centre.

This coffee is never touched by preservatives or aided with fertilizers. It is never planted, cultivated or forced to grow but instead, remains hidden among the Mango and Popayan trees of the Colombian jungle where only experienced villages know where to find them.

The extremely rare growing conditions produce a highly unique cup, with earthy flavours and herbal aromas. A bright acidity and caramel sweetness can be found on the tongue, producing a fresh and well balanced cup.

Not only are the flavours outstanding but so is the message: the profits raised from the coffee sales goes towards preserving this sacred growing region. Learn the story behind the coffee

Profits from the sale of Kogi Coffee are used to buy back and conserve Colombian ancestral lands and sacred sites.

    I enjoyed this coffee, light and easy drinking.

  2. RB (verified owner)

    Used this with my V60. Fairly consistent tasting, a bit more acidic than I expected but something you get used to. Really like the last little caramel, malt hit at the end.

    We tried the Colombian Specialty Wild Grown Coffee this time along with some tried and true favourites. The Wild Grown has become a new favourite for my partner who rated it a 9/10. I enjoyed the caramel notes but not to the same extent. An excellent coffee. The Il Caramello, Tall Dark and Handsome and Papua New Guinean were brilliant.

    I bought this coffee just so I could get my order over the threshold needed to receive free shipping and I must say, I didn’t expect it to be so nice!

    I have only had it black, using a Delter Press (basically an Aeropress) and the light, fruity taste is perfect for an easy going cup of coffee. It probably won’t satisfy you if after a strong ‘traditional’ black coffee but i definitely recommend it for those occasions where you may want something lighter and easier to drink.

  5. Felicity Deane (verified owner)

    Delicious – i adore this coffee – it gets me out of bed in the morning.

  6. Jason Steele (verified owner)

    I love it. The taste is perfect for waking up the taste buds in the morning. I am sure I will order again when I am getting low

  7. Bre (verified owner)

    Very nice. I drink short blacks without sugar and found this coffee pleasant to drink without a lot of bitterness.

  8. Hayden (verified owner)

    Great coffee. I normally drink coffee black and this is a great coffee to drink as a short or long black. You can taste the fruit hints coming off the coffee.

  9. dunroamin (verified owner)

    Quite different to what I normally order, but robust and very satisfying. Will definitely recommend it.

  10. Stu (verified owner)

    Great coffee for the morning short black.

  11. catherine.creagh (verified owner)

    Very tasty coffee. I found it quite light but with a lovely full bodied flavour. I use a stove top mocka pot. I would absolutely buy again, and I think it is worth a couple extra bucks to support sustainable practices.

  12. trishan (verified owner)

    A really nice coffee for the Aeropress. I’ll definitely be reordering and it’s great to know that I am supporting the growers through my purchase.

  13. Rachael Page (verified owner)

    A really delicious coffee and definitely one of my favourites! I also love that it is wild grown and profits help their sacred sites 🙂 Will be buying this coffee again!

  14. Felicity Deane (verified owner)

    I love getting up in the morning because I know that drinking my coffee is one of my most favourite times of day.

  15. Jason Burley (verified owner)

    This is up there with Il Caramello , highly recommend trying If you enjoyed. !!

  16. Joanne Keighery (verified owner)

    The decaf is very nice. I use it in my Rocket and it tastes great. I have my own grinder and just grind a weeks worth to keep it fresh. Postage was quick and I will repurchase

  17. Robert Thompson (verified owner)

    Great tasting coffee through my Magnifica Ecam 22.110SB
    Smooth tasting with a slight hazelnut finish, great coffee to start my life on this machine, learning newer delights all the time.
    Will definitely order more in the coming weeks

  18. alok.nabi (verified owner)

    Good tasting coffee but difficult to get consistent shot.

  19. Megan (verified owner)

    Delicious, well balanced and rich.

  20. Ryan Powers (verified owner)

    Really enjoyable coffee and I particularly like the that its a Indigenous Wild Grown Project. Happy to purchase and support these communities.
    Continued support from me.

  21. Marty D (verified owner)

    I actually found this one quite an experience. There was no doubting it was different to anything I have tried before. At fort the grassy herbaceous overtones were a little odd to my palate, but, as I grew accustomed to the flavour profile, I found it brewed a very light and refreshing cup. I found this my go-to bean for my filter and plunger brews! A real point of difference for my coffee drinking. Would recommend people give it a try and surprise their taste buds.

  22. Jacq (verified owner)

    Good coffee but think some of the other beans I’ve tried from here are better. I too like the information card that comes with it.

  23. Brendan (verified owner)

    Great tasting coffee. Enjoyed by all we share with.

  24. Kim Hutchison (verified owner)

    Love this coffee. Its perfect in our office espresso machine and is really enjoyed by all our coffee loving staff.

  25. Christine

    Thoroughly drinkable …. let’s not over complicate our coffee !

  26. shirley (verified owner)

    fantastic. Our office staff are enjoying it very much.

  27. Luch (verified owner)

    This coffee is delicious. We bought it as a special occasion coffee but now any other coffee in the house tastes so bad in comparison that we are drinking it every day. It has quite a light taste and finish and doesn’t give you the jitters even after quite a lot of it.

  28. Stacie (verified owner)

    A very light coffee with a fruity taste to boost. Combined with a pleasant and earthy aroma made each cup enjoyable and tasty. Great coffee, but I underestimated my taste buds and will be ordering a medium roast next.

  29. Wendy Burke (verified owner)

    I don’t profess to be an expert on coffee – I just know what I like and I really like this. I love the earthiness of it, it has a great flavour to me. I also love the way it’s grown and that The profits go back into the community and the land. It’s now the staple coffee bean in our house.

  30. Andrew (verified owner)

    This coffee is very light and smooth with minimal acidity which makes it rather enjoyable if you’re like me and don’t like bitter coffee.

  31. Damien (verified owner)

    Very tasty as an espresso or with milk. Had quite a unique (in a good way) flavour compared to other single origins but still very pleasant overall. Also behaved surprisingly well on the espresso machine for such a light roast.

  32. Tanya (verified owner)

    Thoroughly enjoying this coffee and the delivery service time is outstanding. Nothing beats the smell of coffee arriving in your mailbox 👍

  33. mikeboulton (verified owner)

    Great flavour and great depth, really enjoyed this coffee! Its a must try.

  34. simon (verified owner)

    One of our family favourites, with chocolate after-taste after a nutty acidic start. We enjoy it with Bonsoy or expresso and even cold. Getting the grind correct is always important, but very much so with this bean. We also enjoy the story behind the bean…

  35. David (verified owner)

    Tried most of the coffee bean blends, looking for something a little bit different, this blend was a pleasant surprise. A real unique flavour, enjoyed the beans and would recommend giving them a go!

  36. adam (verified owner)

    great coffee I really like to have with some sugar

  37. Abby (verified owner)

    Awesome beans, really enjoyable caramel taste+aroma!

  38. aenaylor (verified owner)

    Tasty but not worth the extra cost.

  39. N (verified owner)

    Roast felt darker then expected. Acidity also seemed a little harsh. Otherwise not a bad coffee, but not exactly what I was expecting either

  40. Kevin (verified owner)

    My new favourite. I thought nothing could possibly top Il Caramello. But this coffee is awesome. I loved the card that came with the delivery, telling a bit of the story of how these wild beans are harvested. To my taste buds it starts off fruity (tastes just like loquat fruit) and then I get the caramel hit. Bit like a dark chocolate/caramel version of Cadbury’s fruit n nut chocolate. Thanks guys, I’ll be ordering it again.

  41. Robert (verified owner)

    This coffee is delicate yet complex. Caramel aroma with a hint of nuttiness, vibrant acidity which added to the complexity on.the palate. The acidity awaken the palate followed by smooth and long finish with a good dark chocolate bitterness at the end. The light medium roast is perfect for it. What a delightful drink.

  42. Michaela Smith

    I tried this coffee in my Aeropress and it’s delightful! It was light, with a bright acidity that plays nicely on the tongue. Would highly recommend this coffee, especially with the great social enterprise aspect of it. Thanks!
