Kribi Coffee imports green coffee beans from Cameroon and other parts of the world, which it roasts via an alternative eco-friendly roasting method. The result, fresher, better tasting coffee. From bean-farming to the roasting process we manage every vertical, coupling authenticity with increased profit margins: brick-and-mortar, POD drive-thru, walk-up and food truck.

TRADITIONAL DRUM-ROAST
Unfortunately, the traditional roasting process creates a burnt and bitter taste.

THE EXPERIENCE
Too often American consumers find themselves paying for stale and overpriced coffee. Coffee that is waiting during packaging, logistics storage and miles of transportation becomes stale. That coffee’s price remains high, yet nothing about the end-product and process is unique, exciting, and different.





Kribi Coffee Air Roasters eliminate the traditional flame-roast process in drums and introduces convection small batch air-roasting

UNMATCHED ROASTING PROCESS

  • Eliminates burnt and bitter taste
  • Cleaner, fresher, and better-tasting coffee




     


OUR PROMISE

  • Serve the freshest, best-tasting coffee without hurting the environment
  • Deliver unique and unparalleled beans freshly harvested and just-in-time-roasted
  • Protect and bolster the local farmers who make serving the best coffee possible
  • Rapid deployment of semi-permanent PODS with drive-thru and walk-ups, and food/coffee trucks

POINT-OF-SERVICE ROASTING
You can find our beans, roasted live at our coffee shops, grocery stores, PODS and food trucks

BEGINNING WITH GREEN BEANS
All of our coffee is roasted from fresh, raw, green-coffee beans. Our green coffee beans can be preserved for more than 1-year.

LESS THAN 10 MINUTES
Kribi Coffee Roasters can transform 1-to-5 Lbs. of the humblest green beans into something truly remarkable. The roasters will produce this amount in less than 10-minutes.

OUR PROCESS
Kribi Coffee’s patented hot air system removes and exhausts the coffee bean husks and chaff (outer skin) before becoming charred. Unlike drum-roasted coffee, which uses contact with the drum’s surface heat to obtain a roast, air roasting eliminates the burnt and bitter flavor.

REDUCED PARTICULATES
Our product reduced particulate emissions into the final coffee batch from 50-to-5%. Reduced particulates make for a better-tasting and an enjoyable cup-of-coffee.

SEAMLESS IMPLEMENTATION
The Kribi Coffee air roaster was designed with the future in mind. With its innovative, almost, ventless and compact profile, our roaster can be placed into any environment.

FUTURISTIC AND SMART DESIGN
Our roasters programmable touch-screen, IoT device is easy to operate. Customer roast preferences and profiles can be personalized and stored in a library, enabling it to be replicated at a later time.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Quietly powered by electricity, our roaster is energy efficient and much safer than the gas-powered drum roasters of our American yesterday.


Kribi Coffee is not just a global company, but a global citizen.
