BWANA BLEND

Roasted coffee has been apart of my childhood ever since I can remember. Born in Kenya I am no stranger to coffee and tea. Our medium roast coffee is a masterpiece made from the Kirunyanga farm in Kenya. We value authentic specialty coffee that is smooth and full of flavor.

Every coffee bean is not made equal. Cup after cup, specialty coffees from Kenya offer remarkable clarity of flavor, clean sweetness, and a vibrant acidity. This is due to several factors – including soil content, a commitment at the individual-level to quality, and curated varietals of coffee cherry – but we’ll expand here on the unique processing method.

After picking ripe coffee cherry, fruit is quickly delivered to central processing locations, where underripe and overripes are sorted out to be processed with lower-quality graded lots. Cherries are pulped by squeezing through screens that separate the pulp from the interior seed/coffee bean. The seeds are then fermented in ceramic tile tanks full of clean spring water for 24-hours. Up until this point, this would be considered processing of exceptional quality in any country – but the Kenyan method goes further.

After 24-hours, coffee is agitated thoroughly, then fermented a second 24-hours. After this second day, the fermented water and remaining coffee pulp on the bean are washed off with clean water and soaked again overnight. This step is thought to encourage the coffee bean to germinate again, which contributes to extra sweetness and complexity. The beans are then sorted by screen size – classified as “AA” for the largest (though not necessarily “best”) beans, and “AB” for the everything else. Finally, the beans are slowly dried over raised beds over 1-3 weeks under supervision. Upon reaching optimal moisture levels for export (11.5 – 12%), beans rest in conditioning bins until heading to the dry mill. This last step has recently been adopted in origins across the world.


Coffees from Kenya can display a sharpness of acidity like grapefruit rind, herbal notes, and sweet cherry tomato, but the best lots when well-roasted offer notes of black currant, winey acidity, and complex fruits from sweet citrus to tropical and stone fruits.

Christian, Coffee, million $ conversations

COFFEE & JESUS

As we prepare to launch our website I have become overwhelmed with joy. You may be wondering what does coffee have to do with Jesus ? Let me explain coffee to me provides clarity and gets me started on my daily activities. Jesus anchors me and guides me throughout the day. These two components provide utter peace to a hectic daily routine that consists of work tasks, personal goals and running multiple businesses.

Early in the morning I begin the day by reading the bible and praying to Jesus before I brew a cup of hustle. I then check my phone for any work emails before sipping on coffee. This time of the day is vital to the success of my day. I know that we are creature of habits but I am specific in routine and prefer keeping a steady routine. In this season of my life I have learned to depend on God at all times especially in the morning. In this season my prayer has been “lord please guide me today make a clear path for & allow me to adhere to your holy spirit.”

What we have created at hustleblendz is a lifestyle brand. While our competitors provide coffee, we aim to present a lifestyle brand that can assist you in your daily hustle. Without coffee & Jesus I feel incomplete. In our household we strive to complete tasks that we have been assigned by God. We believe that God has blessed us with this company therefore we honor him daily through this blog and our company. Our goal is to create an altruistic brand that focuses on the greater good which is Jesus Christ.

As common as coffee is what makes our coffee uncommon and unique is the emphasis we have on quality products and excellent customer service. Whilst you chase you dreams we are praying for you whoever you are wherever you are. Our prayer is that this company blesses you with coffee, faith and inspiration. As each day approaches to our launch date I remain encouraged that the pressure we are internally facing as a family is strengthening our faith and our businesses. Thank you for being a part of this company we consider each customer family.
