About Us

since 1977

Passion for Coffee

Our family’s involvement in coffee dates back in the 1940s when Njoya Arouna began the Bamoun Arabia Coffee association. 


The Man'Shi House story begins in 1977, when Dr. Adamou Ndam Njoya acquires one of the oldest and largest coffee plantations in the area. The plantation was one of the few to survive the global coffee crisis in the 90s.By founding the COOPAGRO (Noun Agricultural Cooperative),it sought to reinvigorate the sector in the new context of liberalization and end of government subsidies. Seeing the value in coffee, the COOPAGRO sought to encourage farmers to keep their coffee farms.


since 2014

Roasting Premium Coffee

Man’Shi House is an evolution of the current current family Business La Maison du Cafe. La Maison du Cafe is one of the first speciality coffee shops in Cameroon in 2014. Starting from 2012-2014,the we decided to transform our coffee and promote local consumption of Cameroonian Coffee through a coffee shop La Maison du Cafe. 


Since then we have received multiple awards for the quality of our coffee beans.
