Mchana Estate – Kenya **
**This coffee roasts to order on Tuesday of each week**
Mchana Estate has a rich history dating back to the 1950s. French investors were looking to expand their agricultural portfolio and their agent Jas Nicoll began to acquire coffee estates. These neighboring farms were grouped into one large estate, Mchana, and it became the largest single coffee plantation in Kenya. Fast forward to today, and Mchana estate is 906 hectare with 458 hectare under coffee – almost the same original amount of hectare used to grow coffee as in 1950. Management has changed hands a few times, and today is run by Mr. Wambungo, who is known for his innovation and renovating operations around the farm to increase productivity and quality.
This coffee is a showstopper on the cupping table, with bright tropical fruit notes, a lush body, and tons of sweetness.
Tasting Notes: Papaya, Mango, and Pear
Rebuild Women’s Hope – Congo **
**This coffee roasts to order on Tuesday of each week**Marcelline Budza established Rebuild Women’s Hope (RWH) in 2013 along the shores of Idjwi, a large remote island in the middle of Lake Kivu in eastern Congo. Inspired by her own mother’s resilience, her vision is “to place women at the center of the integral development of her community” and that “building the hope of women is building the hope of the entire nation.” The cooperative supports its members in several meaningful ways, including interest free loans, incentives for cherry delivery thresholds, and are currently building a health clinic. This coffee comes from the Hala Washing Station of RWH. After cherries are delivered, they are sorted by flotation method, depulped, and then have a wet soak with continuously running water for 8 hours. This is followed by washing, pre-drying, and drying the parchment on raised beds for up to 24 days.
