Café Ubuntu Day
Friday, September 27th
8:00 AM - 10:00 PM
The Coffee Bar, coffee priced as mark; FREE samples

Café Ubuntu will be the first ever bakery to open later this month in Maai Mahiu, and we're celebrating its grand opening and special reserve blend in conjunction with National Coffee Day, September 29th.

In Kenya, the word Ubuntu means “I Am Because We Are.” Appropriately named, Café Ubuntu is a true collaboration made possible through CTC International and generously funded by Whole Foods Market and the Whole Planet Foundation.

The café will not only be self-sustaining, create jobs and empower the community, but it will be a much-needed health and nutrition resource center for the Rift Valley. Café Ubuntu will have modern bathroom accommodations and its menu will offer delicious crepes, espresso, and farm-to-table options catered to the local community and the roughly 1 million tourists who drive through Maai Mahiu each year.

Thanks to Allegro Coffee and Whole Journeys, some incredible national prizes await you when you purchase a 12 oz. bag of ground or whole bean Café Ubundu:

  • 1 Golden Ticket - Trip for 2 to OI Pejeta Rhino Conservancy in Kenya (compliments of Game Watchers through Whole Journeys!)
  • 2 Silver Tickets - a pound of coffee per week for a full year.
  • 10 Blue Tickets - a gift bag full of our favorite L.I.F.E. Line product
