Kito was born from our passion for coffee and our desire to reach out to the whole community of coffee-lovers who share it. Let us be your guides on an experiential journey, to discover this fascinating bean and the unique, pristine locations where it grows right across the world. We only process selected, single origin, high quality, specifically sourced specialty Arabica coffees.
Kito means jewel or gem in Swahili. Coffee is our gem, and our mission is promoting its appreciation and the completely different experience of drinking single-origin coffees, where the distinctive growing area and the process used combine to give every cup a uniquely constructed flavour and aroma.
We lead lovers of coffee on a journey to discover its origins and the small growers who produce it in unique, pristine locations. We select and roast their coffees for you to savour with all your senses: fruity, spicy, sweet, fresh and flowery: coffee has an an aroma for every emotion.
We meticulously select only specialty coffee lots that come up to our expectations and quality parameters. We spend a long time on multiple tests to find the ideal roasting profile for every single coffee, so each lot yields its unique flavours and aromas for you to enjoy. We only roast to order. In other words, once a week we roast only the specific quantities of the ordered coffees, and we ship them within 48 hours, to guarantee you fresh coffee every time.
All our coffees are traceable from origin. We tell you not only where they are grown but also the grower cooperative, the process used, the altitude, the variety and the harvesting period, as well as the day of roasting, and we give you the ideal extraction parameters so you can appreciate this wonderful product at its best.
The environment is important to us, and we make very effort to minimise our footprint.
