Munali Coffee: Brewing Change, One Bean at a Time

Nestled in the lush landscapes of Zambia, Munali Coffee has been delighting coffee lovers worldwide with its rich and bold flavors. But beyond its aromatic brew, Munali Coffee stands as a pillar of hope and change for the rural community of Makanda.

The man behind this transformative venture is Jesper Lublinkhof, a visionary with a passion not just for coffee, but for community upliftment and empowerment. Jesper’s journey started with a simple desire to produce exceptional Zambian coffee. However, upon witnessing the educational challenges faced by children in rural Zambia, his mission expanded. He realized that the road to a better future for Zambia was through empowering its youngest generation – a mission he embraced wholeheartedly.

Jesper’s efforts have illuminated classrooms, filled bookshelves, and sparked laughter in playgrounds. His commitment to the children of Makanda serves as a stirring testament to the power of one individual’s determination to make a difference. Munali Coffee continues to sow seeds of change, transforming lives sip by sip, cup by cup.

“Education is not a privilege; it’s a birthright,” says Jesper. Through his work, he has indeed made this belief a reality for many children in Makanda, proving that change can begin with a single cup of coffee. As the main sponsor of Makanda School, Munali Coffee continues its endeavor to ensure no child in their community is left behind, illuminating the path towards a brighter, more prosperous future.
