At Gobena, we are passionate that everyone can Go Make a Difference.
One way to do this is by drinking GREAT coffee for a GREAT cause. Our coffee beans are purchased fresh and in season from the farmer. For example, when our Colombian partner harvests their coffee and finishes the drying process, we import the dried green coffee beans as soon as possible. Once the beans arrive, we small batch roast them. When we say fresh, we mean fresh.
We also believe that beans are roasted to bring out their original flavor. Each bean has different flavor notes and requires different roast temperatures and times. Roasting in small batches allows us to roast each bean to its full potential! Is the coffee your currently drinking over roasted? Probably so. Most roasters tend to over roast because they are using old, out of season beans. That’s why your coffee tastes burnt.
Our coffee is roasted on a Joper Roaster. Manufactured in Canelas, Portugal, Joper has been manufacturing roasters since 1962 and is proud to combine the genuine quality of the European Old World with the most recent technology. Joper symbolises performance, quality and value, giving the roasters, like Gobena, a competitive advantage.

Each mug is hand crafted by our friends at MudLOVE. In an attempt to deny self, MudLOVE was built on the idea of giving back. Starting with nothing more than an old stamp set, a box of clay, and a plan to support clean water projects in Africa, MudLOVE was born, and God-inspired creations emerged. The hope of MudLOVE is to be an inspiration to people, not just providing Africans with clean water, but also encouraging and loving broken people. What one may lack in clean water, another may lack in love.
