Mapendo means love in Swahili, making this delicious coffee aptly named. This is the first we have offered from Congo, and our first time partnering with Mighty Peace Coffee. Their stated mission is to “provide coffee connoisseurs, specialty enthusiasts, and ethical businesses with the highest quality coffee while sharing the stories of Congolese friends and partners to inspire, educate, and end poverty, injustice, and conflict worldwide”.
This lot was made possible by over 4,200 small-holder farmers, 40% of which is women run. The harvest from these farmers was processed locally at one of three washing stations. Traditionally many of these coffees were smuggled to bordering Rwanda, creating great personal risk for farmers and severely limiting the positive economic impact from coffee production. Empowered by Mighty Peace and local washing stations, this washed and parchment-dried coffee, with both dry and wet fermentations, is a key part of our Radiant Coffee lineup. As you sip on this coffee to brighten the morning, you’ll experience notes of black currant, lemon zest, and honey.
