Sopacdi - Congo

Tasting notes

Floral - Lime - Herbal aftertaste

SOPACDI (Solidarité Paysanne pour la Promotion des Actions Café et Development Intégral) is an organization comprised of more than 5,600 farmers, roughly 20 percent of whom are women, located near Lake Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Each farmer has a very small area of farmland for coffee, and tenders cherries to SOPACDI through the organization's 10 subgroups.
Joachim Munganga, who was a farmer himself, founded SOPACDI in 2002 by restoring a washing station in the area, which provided service and market access to the growers in these extremely remote highlands. The cooperative was the first to achieve Fair Trade certification in DR Congo, and the coffee also carries organic certifiaction.
