Farm to Cup Story 

This coffee is a special offering from the SOPACDI co-op of South Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo. This coffee features a juicy citric acidity and botanical notes of juniper and orange peel.  It is rounded out by a viscous body and the fruity sweetness of cherries that intensifies in its richness as the coffee cools, providing a truly layered experience.

 

SOPACDI (Solidarité Paysanne pour la Promotion des Actions Café et Développement Intégral), an organization of more than 5,600 farmers, roughly 20 percent of which are women. Located near Lake Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo, many of these farmers recently returned to their homes after being driven away by the rebel troops spilling over from Rwanda, the DRC’s neighbor on the eastern side of Lake Kivu. At fewer than 2 hectares in size on average, each farmer has a very small area of farmland for coffee, and tenders cherries to SOPACDI through the organization's 10 collection subgroups. SOPACDI was the first cooperative to achieve Fair Trade certification in Congo, and their coffee also carries organic certification.
