Mahembe is back with a vengeance. For the fourth consecutive year, we were able to get our hands on a batch of this exceptional coffee from Justin. His knowledge, and therefore quality, keeps improving year after year. After stepping into his fathers shoes and taking over the farm. Justin is highly committed to nurturing the relationships he has with the smallholders that deliver their cherries to the Mahembe washing station. Not only does he make sure that the smallholders are fairly and competitively compensated for their hard work, he also invests in the community that he is such a proud part of by, amongst other things, building a wet mill on his father’s plantation. Another reason that these lots are getting better each year is the fact that, at Mahembe, the coffee goes through a strict routine for reception and a rigorous sorting process. In addition to the farmers being expected to sort their own cherries before delivering them to Mahembe, Justin’s team will conduct further sorting at the washing station by placing the cherries in a tank and eliminating floaters, which are then processed separately. You could randomly choose any lot from this washing station and end up with a stunning and unforgettable coffee.
