When it comes to Nina’s Coffee “homemade with love” is not just a marketing tagline; the stuff is literally brewed in the kitchen of proprietor Sylthea Redwood-Sawyerr. She plays music as she roasts the beans in small batches. Each batch receives the attention a mother pays to her family’s morning pot of coffee. Small roasting batches and being 100% organic with no added synthetic products help to give the coffee a depth of flavor not found in store-bought alternatives.
The beans that go into this authentically Sierra Leonean coffee come from a small town in Kono District in East Sierra Leone called Yekebema. From here they are transported to her home which serves as the base for deliveries. You can get a cup delivered to you anywhere from Juba to Eastern Police, or you can buy from 232 Complex, Crown Xpress or Choithram’s Supermarket, with more to come. Retail points are expanding as Nina’s Coffee becomes increasingly popular, with hundreds of customers across Freetown and Internationally.
Would you like to have fresh-brewed homemade coffee sent to your door? If you are a coffee lover, look no further.
