These Two Brothers are Bringing a Popular West African Ginger Beverage to Harlem

Brothers Mohammed and Rahim Diallo grew up in Guinea drinking a popular beverage made with ginger, lemons, pineapple, vanilla, anise and cane sugar.

When Mohammed and Rahim emigrated the United States for work as a financial adviser and a biomedical engineer, respectively, they could not find their childhood favorite drink anywhere. The brothers decided to make their own beverage brand, calling it Ginjan after the term for the juice in their dialect in Guinea.

“Back home, when you want the ginger juice, you always say Ginjan, do you have Ginjan,” Mohammed said. Ginjan is an organic West African ginger juice made with ginger, lemons, pineapple, vanilla, anise and cane sugar. The brothers now make it at a shared kitchen in Harlem.
