About this coffee

Coffee story

In the words of Peet's Roastmaster Emeritus Jim Reynolds, "Coffee can be a powerful means of doing good." That sentiment is the soul of this blend, a unique combination of exquisite coffees from smallholder farmers throughout Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia.

Our partnership with the non-profit TechnoServe gives many of these farmers hands-on training to increase the yield and quality of their coffee crops so they can command more favorable prices. Over the years it’s been rewarding and inspiring to see many farmers, through their cooperatives, build schools, install power lines, and provide their communities access to affordable food, among other projects.

It was the farmers who gave this truly sustainable, distinctly African blend its name, Uzuri—which is Swahili for beautiful or excellent. We don't think there's any better way to describe coffee with such a flowery fragrance, smooth, malty-sweet flavors, and dark berry juiciness. Uzuri...beautiful.

Bright, slightly acidic. Grows on you. I make half-caff with decaf Sumatra

This is simply a very nice cup of coffee. Good as a French Press, solid as an Americano, smooth as straight espresso

When I realized that my grocery store didn't have Uzuri African Blend for a week, I came to these pages to find some. That's how much I missed it. It brews into as good a cup of coffee one can find anywhere, from Beijing to Vienna!

We really enjoyed the 2014 Holiday Blend, and Kathy in Customer Service suggested Uzuri African as something close that we could enjoy all year. She was certainly right about that! It has now replaced Colombia as our favorite.

We love this coffee and when we see it on the shelves we buy all the stock because we don't know if it will be restocked. Now that I Know we can order online I might not be so greedy at the stores as they generally don't put more than 4 to 6 12oz bags up.
