The coffee story



This coffee estate lies within Kiambu county near Gatamaiyo forest reserve. Mandela estate is a network of plots rented by a single owner and farm manager where they grow coffee and sell under a single name, Mandela. The plots range in size and elevation and the duo have been farming coffee in this area for some time now and share a central milling facility where the coffee is processed down to the dry parchment before delivery to a larger dry mill where it is prepared for export sales.

The process



The coffee is handpicked, sorted, soaked in fermentation tanks then dried on elevated drying beds.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
