THE WORLD'S FINEST SPECIALTY COFFEE BEANS, ETHICALLY NURTURED
BY CONGOLESE COOPERATIVES USING SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES
PEACE WITH EVERY SIP
Congolese ownership. All women executive team.
Join the Peace Trade, be the change.
Linda, from our Executive team featured here in the New York Times, ensures the highest quality and standards, sourcing directly from Congolese cooperatives. Our Arabica impresses with natural hints of cocoa and hazelnut followed by a clean, balanced finish, a unique flavor profile resonating throughout American and European coffee shops. We only source award-winning specialty beans raised with the highest international standards.
As coffee lands disappear throughout South and Central America, Kenya and Ethiopia, the industry shifts inland towards the Democratic Republic of Congo.
We are well-positioned to grow sustainably for generations, shielded from the impending effects of climate change: rising production prices and reduced coffeelands worldwide.
“It tastes fantastic,
very clean finish, with hints of cocoa and some hazelnut. It’s unique.
Most African coffee that I have had are more floral and fruity.
This is, I thought, straight cocoa.
I am impressed”
-John, Owner & Master Roaster, John Joseph Coffee
We set out to lead an economic transformation rooted in community and capacity-building, fueled by the 4th wave of global coffee consumption - a $100B industry.
We provide connoisseurs and ethical businesses with the highest quality coffee, while sharing stories of Congolese partners to inspire, educate, and end poverty and conflict through economic transformation and international advocacy.
