What if your Coffee

Put girls in school, protected elephants and revived a rainforest?

100% of profits from every roast support the Gorongosa Project

Gorongosa National Park is among the most biodiverse places on Earth. Once threatened by war, this vast and densely populated park is today Africa’s greatest wildlife restoration success story.

Gorongosa Coffee brings you coffee from the slopes of Mount Gorongosa achieving rainforest reforestation and employing local farmers.


100% of our profits fund  conservation and human development projects in and around Gorongosa National Park

When you purchase any of our products, you become part of our self sustaining system that helps to restore and protect the park, creates jobs and provides healthcare, training and education for its people.


Our blends are expertly roasted to the highest specialty coffee standards and feature Gorongosa Green, the first coffee ever exported from Mozambique grown to restore the rainforests of Mount Gorongosa.


Where does my coffee come from?


Each of our blends includes our Gorongosa green bean, grown by farmers on Mount Gorongosa, in Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique. The rest of our beans are sourced from multiple countries in Sub-Saharan Africa including Rwanda, Ethiopia and the Democractic Republic of the Congo.

Is your coffee fair trade?

We are aiming to formally get Fair Trade certification for our Gorongosa green bean by late next year. If you’d like to learn more about how we compensate our farmers on Mount Gorongosa, please drop us a line at info@gorongosacoffee.com.

Do you ship whole bean or ground coffee?

Both! You can choose at checkout.

When is my coffee roasted?

We roast every Wednesday! That means your coffee is roasted shortly after you place your order and within one week of arriving at your doorstep.

Do you offer decaf coffee?

We don’t yet have the processing facilities in Mozambique to be able to produce decaf coffee, but it’s one of our goals for next year!

How can I track my order?

We don’t yet offer tracking on your shipment, but hope to get this set up soon. Once you place your order, however, you should get a confirmation email as soon as it’s shipped, including an estimated delivery date. If on the off-chance your shipment doesn’t arrive, just reach out and we’ll get it sorted!

Can I cancel my order?

Because our coffee beans are roasted-to-order, there’s a small window for us to cancel your order — but we’ll do our best to help you out if you email us at info@gorongosacoffee.com.

How can I update my account information?

We can help! Just email us at info@gorongosacoffee.com and let us know what you’d like us to update.

Do you accept returns?

Because coffee is perishable, we don’t accept returns. However, we do believe in our coffee and want every customer to be happy with their cup! If your shipment is damaged or you have a concern about your coffee order, email us at info@gorongosacoffee.com within 30 days of your order date and we’ll send out a replacement in no time!

Which products do you ship?

All of our blends are available as 12 oz or 5 lb bags of coffee.

When will my order ship?

Your order will ship within two days of roasting and six business days of ordering, as we roast depending on the frequency and magnitude of orders.

Where do you ship to?

We currently ship to all fifty states in the U.S. As of January 2020, we’ve started shipping internationally as well!

What shipping carrier do you use?

We ship all coffee with USPS. In the U.S. we use USPS 2-day Priority Shipping. Internationally, USPS Priority Shipping takes between 6-10 days, depending on the country.

How much does shipping cost?

Are you a nonprofit?

We are an LLC and with a single shareholder, the Gorongosa Trust, which is the trust that funds conservation and human development initiatives in Gorongosa National Park. That means, 100% of our profits funnel straight back into helping make the park sustainable!

What is your relationship with Gorongosa National Park?

Gorongosa National Park cannot sustain itself solely on donations and tourism. Gorongosa Coffee provides a key sustainable finance mechanism for Gorongosa National Park, buying coffee grown by local farmers and then selling the coffee internationally and sending all the profits back to the Gorongosa Trust to support economic, education, health and environmental initiatives in and around Gorongosa National Park.

A Park for Peace

On 1 August, 2019 a historic ceremony was held in Gorongosa to celebrate the Cessation of Hostilities Accord between the leaders of the Government of Mozambique and the opposition Renamo Party. The accord established Gorongosa National Park (GNP) as a ‘Park for Peace’, delivering human development to the communities that share the greater landscape.
