Delightful Organic Coffee from SOPCADI in the D.R.C.

This delightful lot from the Democratic Republic of Congo is unique with notes of chamomile, brown sugar and raisin. Coffees from east Africa can have deep, complex flavors and this year’s harvest from SOPACDI is no exception.

Located on the shores of Lake Kivu, in the eastern region of DR Congo, SOPACDI was founded in 2003 and started exporting coffee in 2008. At 1460 – 1900 meters above sea level, SOPACDI is situated in an ideal region to grow high quality coffee. It was the first organization of small-scale farmers to achieve Fair Trade and Organic certification in Eastern Congo, and the first to export specialty grade coffee. The Congolese gained independence in the 1960’s, and with that a decline in stability began, with constant conflict and civil war over a period of years. Many farmers fled and abandoned their farms during that time. Today, although the situation remains unstable, many farmers are looking to rebuild their lives through agriculture. In 2015, SOPACDI had 7,451 farmer/members whose spirit is stronger than ever, working together to provide a sustainable livelihood.

The Bottom Line

Congo SOPACDI is a uniquely bright and sweet coffee, with all of the familiar characteristics we have come to love from Congolese coffee. It has lots of body and delicious flavors of dried fruit throughout, making it a crowd pleaser for all coffee drinkers.
