This coffee is such a cool, rare opportunity to experience beans from an under-the-radar location and support important humanitarian work at the same time, I couldn't resist.
Democratic Republic of the Congo is a country in turmoil, struggling to find a direction forward for its economy and the lives of its citizens. Rising above the generations of terrible conditions for tribal women, DR Congo is becoming a leader in women-owned and operated coffee producers. In addition, Valerio Coffee is donating a portion of proceeds from DR Congo Organic Coffee to improve the lives of women who grow coffee to support their families.
You'll savor this full-bodied coffee that shows good acidity and uplifting notes of vanilla and peach.
