This coffee is grown in the Kivus of D.R. Congo, in the African Great Lakes Region. Umoja coffee thrives to fruition in the Congolese forested highlands ~ elevation ranging from 1,480 - 2,000 meters. The cooperative that processes this coffee consists of 11,600 members, mostly small farmers, men and women for whom coffee is a vital and often the sole source of income and stability. The Umoja coffee we are working with supports 1,050 specialty famers and 600 cooperative leaders. The fully-integrated coffee company we work with is enabling multiple stakeholders to help improve the living conditions of its members, providing schooling, housing, jobs, and reducing coffee smuggling on Lake Kivu, while promoting women’s pygmy rights.
