Support and Training
Our mission at Kribi Coffee Air Roastery is to disrupt traditional coffee practices daily and bring wealth back to the hardworking coffee farmers. With state-of-the-art equipment, a seamless customer experience, and a sustainable operation that provides all of the delicious choices a customer could want, the Kribi Coffee model has created a successful concept that is always evolving.
While coffee consumption continues to increase, the industry is still lacking methods that personalize production and customize the delivery of specialty coffee. By providing an elevated experience we have tapped into a unique niche within an ever-growing segment. All of our coffee is roasted in-house in small batches so that customers can witness the process, enjoy a cup at peak freshness, and taste then difference all within 10 minutes!
Using patented, eco-friendly air-roasting technology, we offer consumers and connoisseurs something new – a cup of coffee that is authentic, distinctly flavorful, and uniquely experiential. We have a threefold growth strategy that includes retail shops, wholesale, and eCommerce to corner valuable market share while also upholding a global social mission of achieving direct trade collaboration, community outreach, and environmental sustainability.
Our founder, Jacques Shalo, was born into the coffee business. From age five, Jacques was hands-on, on his family’s coffee farm in Cameroon until his teenage years. Upon Jacques’ return to coffee, he began sourcing green beans globally from local farmers to implement sustainable agricultural practices, better working conditions, and quality-of-life improvements.
