Congo Mapendo

Fikiri Charlotte’s life has been positively impacted by growing coffee; it’s allowed her to buy a goat for breeding, build a house, and buy another field where she’s planted coffee trees. With the manure produced by the goat, she’s able to strengthen the ecosystem of her farm through the fertilization of the fields.


Mapendo, which is Swahili for “love,” is farmed in 16 separate lots by 4,200 farmers — of which nearly 40% are women. There are three washing stations, and a fourth under construction, producing fully washed coffee that has been certified FTO since 2009. This offering is fermented for 36 hours (12 hours dry, and 24 hours wet), then dried down to 10-12% moisture for 12-21 days on raised beds. Enjoy a cup of this delicious coffee! Notes of green apple, navel orange, mulled wine, and sweet herbaceous aroma.
