Who We Are
THE CAFFEOL STORY
Welcome to Caffeol Coffee, a women-owned coffee roastery and café dedicated to empowering women throughout the coffee supply chain. Our mission is to source the highest quality Arabica specialty coffee from Ethiopian women farmers, roast it fresh in small batches, and share it with coffee lovers around the world.
Our journey began in 2017 when our founder, Faiza Ahmed Alewi, started our premium brand of specialty coffee in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. As a women-owned and exclusively women-employee company, we’re passionate about empowering women in coffee-growing communities and creating a more just and equitable coffee industry.
At Caffeol Coffee, we specialize in Arabica Specialty Ethiopian Coffee, which is renowned for its complex and unique flavors. We roast our coffee in house at our roastery in Addis Ababa, ensuring that each cup is fresh and delicious. We also have a café in Addis Ababa where customers can enjoy our coffee in a cozy and welcoming atmosphere.
Our commitment to quality extends to every aspect of our coffee, from sourcing to roasting to serving. We believe in supporting Ethiopian women farmers by providing them with fair prices for their hard work and supporting their communities. By partnering with these women, we’re able to showcase the unique flavors and aromas of Ethiopian coffee while also promoting gender equality and economic empowerment.
We’re proud to share our coffee with customers around the world through our online store and partnerships with high-end hotels and gift shops. Our roasted coffee can be found in the USA, Middle East, and we are expanding our presence to the UAE.
Thank you for joining us on our mission to empower women and to enjoy the finest Arabica Specialty Ethiopian Coffee.
