Origin Story:  

Apart from being an unbelievably delicious coffee, we fell in love with the background on this coffee. This coffee, called Mapendo (which means "love" in Swahili) by its farmers, is produced by a group of primarily widowed women who have lost their partners due to the conflicts that have destabilized parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Just as Alma prioritizes paying homage to women in the industry, this group of women focuses on their key pillar of gender justice in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Roast Story: 

As mentioned in the origin story, the team loved this coffee before we even roasted it. This coffee has a nice savoriness to it that we wanted to highlight through a medium roast. The body was full and smooth, so we believe a medium roast is the perfect way to get those soft nutty notes while keeping the body of the coffee in tact. This coffee was very different than what we normally gravitate towards and although not highlighted in the tasting notes, it can be very reminiscent of green tea along with those grain, nut, and citrus notes.

Understanding Grind Types

Whole Bean

Maximize your coffee experience by grinding your own whole beans. The flexibility of a grinder allows you to grind fresh and specifically for your brewing device. It's one extra step, but trust us, it is so worth it ;)

Best For: All Methods

Regular/Keurig (Ground)

This fine-medium grind is perfect for drip machines, keurigs, or aeropresses. It is the most commonly used size, making it a safe option when gifting coffee to a friend or if you are unsure of what grind type to get.

Chemex (Ground)

For Chemex enthusiasts, the coffee grind is coarser compared to other pour over options. This grind size is ideal due to thicker Chemex filters, which slow down water during extraction.

This medium-coarse grind is ideal for fans of pour overs like the V60. For optimal results, we recommend using with paper filters.

Best For: Pour Overs (Not Chemex)
