DK CONGO Umoja Wetu is a medium roast (omni-roast) coffee, so you can prepare it however you like. It is ideal for a quick pour-over (batch brew), but brewing the beans in a coffee machine gives the coffee a new face. Our Umoja is perfectly balanced and mild in flavour. The washed treatment contributes to the purity of its flavour and enhances the fruity (cherry) notes in its profile. The sweetness of the milk chocolate and the pleasant acidity of the Assam tea balance the fruitiness that dominates the coffee.

Farm and processing information:

The history of coffee in the Democratic Republic of Congo is a turbulent one. By the 1980s, the country was exporting more than 120,000 tonnes of excellent coffee a year. Towards the end of the century, the DR Congo found itself in an area of successive conflicts, which, among other things, dramatically affected its coffee exports (which fell to less than 10,000 tonnes/year). In the 21st century, the situation in the country began to improve. Initiatives and associations were formed to rebuild the Congolese economy, including coffee, on the world market.

Coffee farmers in DR Congo are banding together to form cooperatives, which take care of formal matters such as processing and exporting coffee, but also provide ongoing training to improve quality and raise awareness of environmentally friendly practices.

The UMOJA WETU (Our Unity) cooperative brings together smaller producers and works to support local people in South Kivu. It started its activities in 2010 and began producing speciality coffee in 2017, and has been growing steadily in this sector ever since.

The coffee beans ripen in the area of the Lake Kivu that is situated on a plateau. The high altitude provides favourable conditions for growing coffee, mainly Arabica, in this area.
