Good Coffee

Smooth, great tasting coffee that helps keep up. The kids and I especially enjoy the artwork. Each little picture of art tells a story of it's own by just looking at the picture. My child loves the one with the elephant on it, I used the one of the woman gathering to put in the baby keepsake, because it truly was a touching art piece. We go around collecting the art that comes in the packages that looks to be handmade with banana leaves into the paper. Some of the proceeds go to woman's education, and orphans. I don't have much money to always spend, so I actually do look at prices for things, but it's nice to give back, and it's the same price as other coffee brands, but slightly less cost for better tasting coffee. So double score for that! Ajiri has antioxidants in it. What isn't there to like? I don't want to know if a monkey helped poop this coffee out, like some kona coffees. The coffee taste good, strong, but not bitter, and smooth. Ajiri helps me be a better mom, up on my toes, and my whole family enjoys the art work, so it's like having 2 gifts for the same amount, yet less that you pay for other coffee brands, that don't have a good taste, or more beneficial antioxidants in it. Coffee has been linked to a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, liver diseases, Alzheimer's, and such...More reason to love coffee! However, Ajiri, gives to orphan's and woman. Quite rewarding I must say to drink a good cup of joe. Cheers!

Kenyan coffee is among the world's finest, and knowing who it supports makes it taste all the better.

Known for its rich earthy undertones and pleasant notes of citrus and berry, Ajiri coffee is as vibrant and inviting as the country from which it comes. And each and every purchase goes toward a powerful goal: to create lasting employment and education for women and orphans in Kenya. You can feel good about your morning cup of coffee.

100% Kenyan Coffee

Scholarship. Mentorship. A sense of community for orphans. These are a few of the ways your Ajiri Tea and Coffee purchases are strengthening lives in western Kenya.

Ajiri means "to employ" in Swahili. Ajiri's founders recognized that creating a company with a "full cycle of sustainable aid" meant going beyond providing handout benefits or selling great-tasting tea. Having witnessed firsthand the detrimental cycle of aid, dependence, and low self-esteem, sisters Sara and Kate and their mother Ann wanted to start a company that would cultivate jobs, foster economic independence, and advance educational opportunities. Ajiri currently employs 60 women from 5 women's groups to hand-make their keepsake labels as well as the twines that go inside. 100% of Ajiri's net profits are returned to Kenya to pay school fees for orphans, as well as providing mentorship for them in primary and high school.

Ajiri Tea has taken first place North American Tea Championships and won the Buyer's Choice Award for Best Tea, its taste backing up its mission. Only the top leaves and the bud are picked, ensuring the highest quality cup that never turns bitter. Ajiri's black tea blends are sourced from a cooperative of farmers in western Kenya, grown on small-scale shambas, or farms, which average a quarter to two acres of land. Since 2013, Ajiri has proudly offered Kenyan AA Coffee, the highest grade available, yielding bright and fruity flavor and aroma with complimentary gentle notes of wine and black currant. Like its tea, Ajiri's coffee is grown on predominantly small-scale farms spanning from the slopes of snow-capped Mt. Kenya toward Nairobi (to the south).

The Savory Pantry is one of a few stores in the Saratoga area and the only store in Central Arkansas to proudly carry Ajiri Tea and Coffee, and we hope you'll join us in supporting this incredible mission, whose story is as rich as its taste.
