Just after the Second World War Harold Higgins tasted, almost by chance, a coffee which seemed to him to have tremendous possibilities
An East African Chagga coffee with a kinship in flavor with Columbia coffees from South America which were unavailable at the time
He discovered the beans were grown by African farmers on the slopes of Kilimanjaro and began a quest to source this unique coffee
Thwarted by the closed shop wholesale system of his regular sources he journeyed to Moshi at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro to meet the farmers
Absconding from an organized trip to Nairobi he boarded a local bus to be welcomed by the farmers, indigenous Chagga people, and became the first coffee merchant in London to buy directly from African farmers.
