Flavor Notes: Chocolate Bar, Apricot, Lilac, Green Apple
Our latest release from the Democratic Republic of the Congo is appropriately named Mapendo, which means “love” in Swahili. Born out of a desire to uplift people as well as create exceptional coffee, this micro-lot was put together under the watchful eye of Linda Mugaruka, Coffee Quality Director for Mighty Peace Coffee. Linda is on-the-ground working daily with local farmers to enable them to produce more abundant yields as well as flawless coffee cherries. What motivates her and the team at Mighty Peace to work tirelessly is love for the people. What springs forth from that love is exceptional coffee.
Mapendo, grown around the Lake Kivu region, is a beautiful coffee with notes of dark chocolate, apricot, green apple, and a slight floral finish. Complex and bursting with flavor, it is representative of the kind of quality cup we’ve come to really appreciate from Mighty Peace Coffee.
