Cameroon Boyo is organically grown in dark, nutrient rich volcanic soil at elevations exceeding 5,000 feet. This family owned estate boasts daily doses of brilliant sunshine allowing the coffee berries to quickly attain their optimal sugar content. This is the secret to the mellow, aromatic, and rich full bodied Boyo Coffee.
“Mama” the owner of this estate, gifted us with her presence here at the warehouse. She was an amazing person to speak with. She told us how everything is processed by hand on her estate, to ensure each bean is picked at the right ripening. Mama described the farmers carrying bags of heavy weight coffee on their heads to transport from one side of the estate to the other. We sat in awe as she spoke about her family’s estate and what it meant to her.
The full trace-ability of the farmer-owned Cameroon Boyo™ Coffee micro lots is another way in which we hold ourselves accountable for our coffee, a testament of our confidence that we have delivered the quality coffee that will keep our customers returning, over and over!

Love this coffee. Just wish it was a little lighter roast.
This coffee outperforms it's price point. I do feel it is a medium roast and might lean a TOUCH towards a darker taste, but that slightly bolder taste profile is rich and extremely flavorful. NOTHING like "burnt bean" Starbucks. I tend to prefer light and medium roasts OVER dark, but this coffee keeps it in balance. This coffee is a winner.
A very good coffee with a unique flavor profile, but I don't think it should be listed under the "medium roasts". It has a very dark color and that "burnt bean" taste that so many Starbucks customers seem to like. I wish it really did have a medium roast flavor. This particular coffee would be great with a light roast but Aroma Ridge doesn't seem to offer a light roast at all. Too bad!
