We are thrilled to work with Mighty Peace Coffee, a woman-and-minority owned company, to bring you Mapendo.
You'll be delighted when tasting this vibrant coffee; it's our juiciest coffee yet! Its sparkling acidity is bolstered by an abundance of ripe fruit notes. While bright, this cup remains ultra clean and balanced with a citrus finish.
Mighty Peace is built upon three pillars of values: high labor standards & Fair-Trade certifications, environmental sustainability and partnering with local, nationals and international agencies.
Mapendo, Swahili for “love,” is farmed in 16 separate lots by 4,200 farmers, nearly 40% of whom are women. Mapendo farmers produce fully washed coffee that has been certified Fair Trade Organic (FTO) since 2009. There are 3 washing stations, including one large and two mini washing stations. A fourth station is under construction along with a modern lab for cupping and quality control.
