Tasting Notes

Lots of rich fruit and sugar flavors of plum, orange peel, and spice. Complex sugars with good depth and a smooth mouthfeel.

About the Cooperative

Located on an island on Lake Kivu in the D.R. Congo - this Cooperative employees 2,282 members with 1,562 of them being women. The Cooperative serves as a refuge for women in the region - enabling them to lead, run, and operate the Cooperative.

In its early days, the Cooperative began investing in the lives of members in meaningful ways. Micro-credit programs were hard to access and often come with exorbitant interest rates, so the Cooperative offered pre-harvest, interest-free loans which producers can repay during the harvest with either cash or coffee cherry. The Cooperative has plans later in the year to start a nursery program to begin replacing the older bourbon trees that are common in much of eastern Congo. They also have plans to build a health clinic on the island–and in late 2019 have purchased land and have schematics built for the clinic!–as many members currently lack access to basic health services.
