Congo - Muungano Co-Op - DECAF

Founded in 2009, Muungano coop is comprised of around 4,400 smallholder farmers, nearly half of them women.  Gender justice is a principal focus of the members, as is integrating farmers from different ethnic groups into the operation.  The word “Muungano” actually means “Togetherness” in the Swahili language.  When we first visited the group, they were milling coffee on equipment from the early twentieth century, but still managed to produce the best Congo coffee we had ever tasted. Since then, they have installed two new washing stations, a new cupping lab and have a trained roaster and cupper on staff.  The fruits of their hard work are evident in the sweet, bright, and complex coffees they produce every year.
