We collaborated with Margaret Nyamumbo of Kahawa 1893 for the Spring 2022 Spice Club to create an African Spice Coffee blend inspired by a traditional Kenyan coffee drink known as "Kahawa Chungu," which is a spiced coffee enjoyed black or with sugar and milk.
For this beautifully balanced spiced coffee, Kahawa 1893's freshly ground medium roast coffee is blended with our cinnamon verum, cardamom seeds and cloves sourced directly from smallholder farmers in Zanzibar, Tanzania, and Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. Cinnamon verum brings notes of brown sugar and orange peel to the blend, cardamom brings haunting sweetness and clove’s spicy warmth rounds out the blend.
Brew this coffee as desired and add milk of your choice for a warming beverage in the morning, or try it as a cold brew over ice with an orange twist for an afternoon pick-me-up! Not into a cuppa? No problem! This coffee makes a fabulously rich addition to brownies, chocolate cakes and meat rubs (try it on steak, trust us).
- Origin: San Francisco, CA, USA
- Process: Roasted and ground
- Ingredients: Ground coffee, cinnamon verum, cardamom, cloves
- Size: 4 oz bag

This coffee collab is amazing, excellent with a little dairy or non-dairy creamer. The spices and coffee play really well together, neither outshines but both are prominent.
The coffee is not overpowered by the spice blend. Rather, it is enhanced by the spices. I am not a fan of flavored coffee so was doubtful about trying this. To my delight, this is like a cuppa and dessert rolled into one delicious sip! Highly recommend this coffee for any time of day.
Oh my word
Oh my word!!!!!! This is so perfectly balanced!!!!!!! Let’s go ahead and put this in a bigger bag. I added a tbs to my regular fresh ground beans to make an 8 cup pot. It’s absolutely amazing. Just delightful!
This spiced coffee blend is something else! When it arrived in my subscription I immediately prepared it with my drip set up and WOW. Spices are complimentary to the beans and it was a delicious way to start the day. Ordering more!
Best Coffee Ever!
This coffee is so flavorful, smooth and downright delightful that I will drink it black and I'm a strict coffee with cream person. I love the aroma and almost creamy mouth feel of it. This is a superlative blend and I can't wait to try it as a base for my favorite espresso drink (even though it's not meant for that) a cafe Borgia-which is a mocha(with a good quality chocolate) with fresh orange zest in it I believe the spices in this coffee will take it to the next level! Thank you so much for this wonderful Collab B and B!
