MBD Roasters Premium Single Origin Coffee - Cameroon


Cameroon coffee has a rich, full body and mellow taste featuring a very pleasant aroma. Cameroon has great agricultural conditions, providing one of the best primary commodity economies in the sub-Saharan Africa region.

Tasting notes include a heavy body, toffee, chocolate and caramel with hints of molasses and blackberry. This coffee is grown at an elevation of 7,200 feet on the side of Mount Kilum. Cameroon is famous for white honey, and with this large population of bees the coffee plants receive lots of assistance in pollination.

Coffee here was brought in the early 1900's from Jamaica, and this Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee flourished in the ideal climate conditions of Cameroon where the shade grown coffee is under the banana trees. Location is in central Africa. To its west is the Gulf of Guinea which is eventually the ocean further west, and to its north is Nigeria.

Ingredients: 100% Arabica Coffee.

Why Single Origin Coffee?

 As the Specialty Coffee Association's (SCA) Andra Vlaicu says:

“The most important thing about single origin is its traceability, the fact that you know exactly where your coffee is from and that it’s a specific coffee, not a blend. Usually of a higher quality, it’s the acknowledgment that the coffee is from a particular farm located in a unique setting, whilst its flavour depicts its origin, possessing characteristics of that specific area where the particular coffee was grown.”

The importance of using a Degassing Valve for our packaging:

We take pride, and rightly so, in our roasting process and endeavor to create a product that has quality flavor, acidity, body, aroma, and finish.

During this process, both volatile and non-volatile gases are released. These gases, 80% of which is CO2, add to the flavor of the coffee but also continue to emit for some time.

This is why, when perfecting the roasting process, packaging is not just the final step, but an extremely important one. It maintains the freshness, integrity, and shelf-life of the ground or whole bean coffee and it does so in a way that is unique.
