At Mpenjati Coffee we value the simple things that make a great product… know and understand the terrior, in order to produce outstanding premium single-origin coffee. For generations, we’ve been farming the fruitful soil of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Every bean originates from the rolling coastal hills of Southern Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. Where the Mpenjati River over millennia has carved a course to the Indian Ocean.
Hot humid summers and mild balmy winters are typical of the region. Add to that the influence of the oceanic breeze and you have growing conditions almost as premium as the beans themselves.
The beauty of the land
This land has been shaped with time and the rich dark soils that lie beneath its surface offer a near idyllic substrate. But there is so much more to the surroundings.
What can be said about the lush riverine vegetation that plays host to numerous birds and sanctuary to elusive native bushbuck? There is a peacefulness here enhanced by the undeniable background beat of crashing ocean waves.
At Mpenjati Coffee all these elements combine so that after a season there is on offer a fruit, hand-picked, sun-dried, and sorted to bring out of the best small-batch premium coffee.
