The Republic of Cameroon, is located along the Gulf of Guinea, the Western coast of Africa. The country is called "Africa in miniature" for its geological and cultural diversity, which includes beaches, deserts, mountains, rainforests and savannas. The growing areas for this coffee are nestled around the slopes of Mount Oku, a volcano that is the second highest mountain in mainland West Africa. The area is a very high mountainous region (~4000 feet above sea level). This high elevation and rich volcanic soil provide the optimal growing condition for high quality arabica coffee.
Of the thousands of coffees we encounter in our search for the best, only a precious few are deemed exceptional enough to become Starbucks Reserve® coffees, offered only for limited times at select stores.
- Product Details
Full-bodied with enticing herbal, floral layers and notes of black pepper and tea.
A group of ambitious smallholder farmers from Cameroon, where robusta is the traditional coffee harvest, worked closely with a local cooperative to perfect the quality of their beans – and improve their livelihoods – by producing this outstanding arabica. Located in west central Africa, across the continent from where most of Africa's finest coffees grow, Cameroon boasts a diverse geography - from deserts to rainforests to Mount Oku, where these beans thrive high in the rich volcanic soil.
This special Starbucks Reserve® coffee is in very limited supply and only available at select stores.
