About

Our Organic Congo Umoja from the Southern Kivu province is distinctly zesty and vibrant. As a light roast, this coffee is both sweet and herbaceous with a syrupy body and a blood orange zest finish. The full-bodied flavor of Congo Kivu coffee fills the palate and is sure to be a favorite for any light roast coffee lover.

The coffee community in Tsheya has greatly improved their economic status with the installation of the Tsheya washing station. The station provides local farmers with seedlings and agricultural training to encourage coffee growing. The USDA Organic certification also ensures that farmers are following the highest standards in terms of traceability and ecology.

Congo

Kivu’s proximity to the equator is perfect for coffee growing, as its temperatures and average precipitation nurture the Congo’s verdant landscape.
