Congo Sopacdi Cooperative, Fair Trade Organic

Congo Coffee

 

 

Mean Cat Coffee is very proud to offer this special and very rare Congo coffee. A little history from Sopacdi:

We are over 5600 farmers from different ethnic groups in the Kivu Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, producing some of the finest coffee in Africa. After years of conflict and civil war, our Fairtrade-certified coffee promotes working together for a better future.

We live in a beautiful but very difficult place. Our small communities are remote, scattered amongst the highlands of the mountains surrounding Lake Kivu in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Our coffee grows at an altitude of 1460m to over 2000 metres above sea level.

We have lived through civil war and in great poverty for many years, but since forming our cooperative Sopacdi, despite our challenges, we also feel full of hope. For the first time we have good buyers for our coffee, who buy from us directly. Our homes are basic, without electricity, running water and other amenities. But our families are back together and we are re-building our communities.

Our headquarters are in the town of Minova, and we have just finished building the first coffee washing station the region for over 40 years.

Not only is this coffee very rare, but it's also very delicious! Notes of Baker's Chocolate and brown sugar are prominent in the cup, with floral and dark cherry nuances and an orange-like acidity. The cup has great body with a creamy mouth-feel that compliments the flavors in the cup. Pulls a fantastic shot in an espresso machine. Typical for African coffees, this tends to have higher acidity than most, for those who are sensitive.
