The Kijiji Way

Kijiji Coffee House is the brainchild of Edward C. and Linda Stevenson of Nashville. Kijiji coffee house opened its doors in November 1997 at historical 1413 Jefferson St. Kijiji’s is the first African American establishment of its kind in Nashville, Tn. The name Kijiji means “village” in the Swahili language. The coffee house quickly became a watering hole for North Nashville professionals, college/university students, business owners, and residents. In addition to offering fine quality gourmet coffees, desserts, and deli sandwiches, Kijiji’s offered exposure to up and coming musicians by offering jazz weekly. Open mic poetry was an original part of Kijiji’s format and became known as the community’s hot spot for poets old and young alike every Friday for nine years.

After 9 years of brick and mortar Kijiji Coffee House focused its business on wholesale coffee distribution and kiosks/concessions  operations. Kijiji Coffee has been featured in venues all across the Music City including Nissan Stadium, Airport and the Music City Center.


Bold Yet Smooth

Kijiji’s coffee is fresh roasted in small batches to clearly monitor the development of the roast. Coffee is roasted to order to give maximum freshness, unlike most large coffee companies who leave their coffee on the shelves in their warehouse for months. We seek and choose out only the top grades of Arabica beans from around the world.
