About This Coffee

This is a fully washed Kivu Grade 3 coffee from DR Congo. This sundried coffee - a process that requires extra attention, space and expertise - is prepared by the care of employees of Virunga Coffee in the region of Isale in North Kivu. The Virunga Washing Station focuses on providing training to coffee farmers and access to the international coffee market. Virunga has several agronomists working with coffee producers at the foot of the Nyiragongo volcano.Coffee travels to the Virunga washing station where where it is milled and then trucked to the port of Mombasa, a 2 to 4 day journey across two countries, Uganda and Kenya.The Congo coffee industry used to be much more prominent. But, due to civil war (1998-2003) and continued political instability, the industry all but disappeared. Cooperatives are starting to establish and grow to revitalize the industry and bring back a well-needed source of income to Congolese of North and South Kivu.
