The UNESCO-protected Macenta region offers some of the world’s best soil and harvesting conditions for sustainable coffee farming.
Yet currently there is still no quality single-origin coffee from this extraordinary terroir on the market.
We started Macenta Beans because we want to bring something new and exciting to your favorite coffee shop — and transform the lives of Macenta’s farming communities who for too long have been unable to realize the potential of their coffee.
With the single-origin specialty Robustas we’re developing at Macenta Beans, we’re pioneering a new category in the $100billion global coffee market, one that boosts biodiversity, reduces carbon footprint, empowers growers and tastes incredible in your latte.
Stay informed as we build a sustainable future for coffee in West Africa.
Bees, biodiversity and Robusta
For coffee farmers climate change is not some distant threat — it’s here and it’s already happening. At Macenta Beans we’re taking a different path — to build a sustainable coffee future for our farmers, our customers, and our children.
Discover how our coffee is supporting biodiversity and can help you reduce your carbon footprint.
Disrupting a billion dollar industry
Baristas and leading industry voices are increasingly looking to Robustas for their unique taste profiles as well as for environmental reasons.
Find out how we can build a movement that changes the way coffee is grown, produced and sold in West Africa and beyond.
Trace your coffee to its origins
Guinea is one of the original birthplaces of coffee, yet a dominant system of cash crops undermining quality has prevented farmers from providing the kind of stewardship this magnificent terroir deserves. For decades the world’s coffee lovers have been denied the true coffee of Macenta. Until now.
Trace our coffee back to its roots.
How we empower farmers
We’re working with Macenta’s coffee farmers to create a truly world-class Robusta — coffee that can share platforms with the finest Arabicas on the market.
Learn how we’re building knowhow, infrastructure and pride in Macenta’s farming communities and opening up quality international markets.
Crafting Robusta like no other
We process our coffee using a highly refined and ecologically sustainable ‘washed method’.
The effect — flavor is derived almost entirely from the earth and what’s absorbed during the growing cycle. This creates one of the most authentic and natural coffee experiences possible.

Meet the founder
Mamy has travelled the world to understand global value chains and best practices used by coffee farmers. Now, through Macenta Beans, he is bringing his knowledge and a pioneering vision for sustainable coffee production back to Macenta — and out to the world.
We have already achieved a lot. In 2020 we produced the first Macenta Beans coffee. And we now have a network of 2,000 coffee farmers ready for the next season, which starts in October 2020.
As we enter a new phase I’m excited to
launch a crowdfunding initiative to build a state-of-the-art coffee washing station – the first of its kind in all of West Africa. With your support, we can secure a sustainable coffee future for our farmers, our children, and for coffee lovers around the world.
