Democratic Republic of the Congo Umoja
This is one of our Trail Blazer Series of coffees, an intentional effort on the part of RCC to focus on direct trade relationships that benefit small coffee farms.
Dignified Congolese farmers from the Peace Cooperative provide these top quality Arabica beans grown at over 1,800m between Lake Kivu and the Mitumba Mountain Range. The rich volcanic soil and high altitude give these beans a complex variety of flavors including lemon, orange, and dark chocolate.
The Peace co-op holds both Fair Trade and Organic certifications, On top of that, the sale of these beans has helped to give the co-op members schooling, housing, job opportunities, all while promoting women's and pygmy rights in the region. This high quality roast is truly a coffee with a cause.
