PEACE + LOVE + EMPOWERMENT
The Kirindera Women’s Peace Coffee of the COOPADE Association aims to bring peace to Virunga National Park and across DRC. By growing coffee, the Kirindera women are employing young people and providing them with an alternative to joining the armed groups that are destabilising the region.
This absolutely delicious coffee with a gorgeous buttery (chewy) mouthfeel ticks all of the boxes. It’s unctuous and sweet and finishes with lovely rhubarb tartness and floral aroma.
