Description

The name Sédimai derives from a village deep in the rainforest of Ziama and has its very own microclimate. Our Sédimai espresso are almost wild coffees, rarely experienced outside the region because they are so cut off from the rest of the environment.

For us at Macenta Beans, it is especially important to support farmers in this region and to provide them with the necessary infrastructure and sales channels that are so important for a sustainable, fair and promising future for coffee farmers.

We pay a fair price for the farmers’ work to create a tasty, quality product, allowing the entire region the chance for real and lasting change.

Our unique processing allows us to highlight the specific and unique characteristics of the coffees – in this case, the flavorful chocolaty notes. For our Sédimai espresso, we used the Pulp Natural method, which involves drying the coffee with the so-called mucilage left over from the removal of the pulp. This mucilage contains a natural sweetness that, depending on the drying time, gives the coffee a full body with spicy and intense flavors.

We roast the beans in Berlin. By roasting the coffee with appropriate care, the characteristic chocolaty aromas can develop and make the Sédimai, like our other varieties, a unique Robusta.

Additional information

What makes Macenta Beans Robusta coffee so special?

Taste. Every single Macenta Beans coffee has a unique taste, thanks to the special soil conditions and microclimate.

Transparency. We buy the coffee cherries directly from coffee farmers, process it ourselves and sell it ourselves. Thus, we can offer our customers full transparency.

Fair trade. We pay our coffee farmers three times more for their coffee than the usual market price. In addition, we transfer know-how and with our showcase plantation we create a place for exchange, learning and networking.

Social Impact. We create perspectives and make a real difference to the lives of people in Macenta. Sustainable! And this not only during the coffee season, but all year round – through our fruit and vegetable project we create jobs not only for the coffee farmers.

Good for the environment. We use no fertilisers, no chemicals. We plant coffee trees. We practice waste-free production. Our Robusta creates habitats for bees and insects. Our Robusta is not grown in monocultures and thus improves soil conditions.

Active against deforestation. Due to the higher income from coffee, more and more coffee farmers are motivated to stay in coffee production instead of removing the coffee plantations and replacing them with palm oil plantations. Unfortunately, this still happens quite often in other regions. We want to change that!

Ecological footprint. No coffee-growing country in the world is closer to Germany than Guinea.

About Macenta Beans

Coffee from Guinea, West Africa, is still fairly unknown in the world. Macenta Beans is going to change that. Our goal is to produce one of the best Robusta coffees in the world – not only to increase the awareness of coffee from Guinea, but also so that the entire coffee variety Coffea canephora, also known as Robusta, gets more attention worldwide.

We believe in the unique characteristics of Robusta coffee and promote a quality-oriented, sustainable and effective way of production.

Macenta coffee is one of the first three Geographical Indications recognized by the African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI) in 2013. Our coffee grows near one of the densest rainforest areas in West Africa, surrounded by the Ziama Massif – a 1,384m mountain range. The region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to 22 protected species.

The high altitude and the particular humid microclimate of the Macenta region provide excellent growing conditions, which, combined with state-of-the-art processing techniques, result in excellent quality coffee.
