An inspirational blend of East African Coffees that is smooth and balanced, with rich chocolate, sweet vanilla, brown spices and a hint of fresh berry. Whole bean only.
From the time of colonization on, the Democratic Republic of Congo has been shaken by conflict. In recent decades, combatants fighting for land and resources have used sexual violence as a tactic, affecting thousands. For women, men and children who are rape survivors in need of medical attention, there are not many treatment options; they are sometimes ostracized, abandoned or ignored with nowhere to go. In 2011, Equal Exchange founded the Congo Coffee Project with the Panzi Foundation as a means to bring Congolese coffee to market in the United States while offering healing for survivors and raising awareness about the alarming rate of violence.
Every purchase of this coffee supports coffee farmers and makes a difference in the lives of survivors of sexual violence. Since 2011, Equal Exchange has raised over $100,000 from sales of Congo Coffee Project coffee! This work has had an amazing impact, and your help makes it possible.
