Description

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 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!

    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.

    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.

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

    Tasty but not worth the extra cost.

  6. Abby (verified owner)

    Awesome beans, really enjoyable caramel taste+aroma!

  7. adam (verified owner)

    great coffee I really like to have with some sugar

  8. 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!

    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…

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

  11. Tanya (verified owner)

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. shirley (verified owner)

    fantastic. Our office staff are enjoying it very much.

  18. Christine

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

  19. Kim Hutchison (verified owner)

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

  20. Brendan (verified owner)

    Great tasting coffee. Enjoyed by all we share with.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. Megan (verified owner)

    Delicious, well balanced and rich.

  25. alok.nabi (verified owner)

    Good tasting coffee but difficult to get consistent shot.

  26. 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
