In 1497, a fleet of dhows, heavily laden with sacks of precious African Coffee Beans, awarded as a token of esteem to the Portuguese Explorer Vasco Da Gama by the Sultan of Zanzibar. As the great ocean going dhows set sail for Europe on the hot monsoon winds, the age-old tradition of ‘ The Coffee Merchant ‘ was born. Centuries later, the custom continues.  Merchants still travel into the depths of Africa and beyond to bring us the finest, most carefully chosen selection of arabica green beans.

Coffee Merchant continues this coffee legacy by buying and raosting the best quality green beans available from Traders from all over the world and then roasting them with consistent results to provide you with the freshest coffee beans time after time.
