Producing Partner: Muungano Cooperative

Our current limited release is a washed process, Bourbon varietal coffee from the Muungano Cooperative located in the South Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Muungano Cooperative consisted of 350 members when founded back in 2009. Today it is comprised of over 4,350 members. 

The word Muungano means Togetherness, which is a fitting name. Living in different areas that are divided by civil war, the farming members of Muungano choose to come together and produce quality coffee, which in turn gives back to the community.

Gender and ethnic equality are of great importance to the members of this Coop, which is made up of nearly half women and incorporating farmers of different ethnicities.
