Democratic Republic of the Congo Mapendo
Back for a second year! Mapendo was one of our standout coffees from last year, and we are thrilled to bring it back this year. This lot picks up where last year's left off-- a big, vibrant and intense cup.
Coffee flavor profile
Blackberry, pomegranate, spice cake
Filter: This coffee loves to be pushed hard. A high extraction yield gave us the cleanest and most well-defined flavors. We target over 1.4 TDS and 24% extraction yield on this coffee. Lower extractions will really raise the intensity and introduce some pithy aftertastes.
We use water with 60 hardness and 20 alkalinity in all filter coffee brewing.
