Java Central Coffee Roasters is proud to announce our new partnership with Mighty Peace Coffee!
UMOJA means solidarity in Swahili. This coffee is grown on volcanic soil at an altitude of over 1480 meters, between Lake Kivu and the Mitumba mountain range. Our cooperative partner holds Fair Trade and Organic certifications. In the 10 years Umoja farmers have been growing specialty coffee, the sale of Umoja has helped to improve the living conditions of their members, provide schooling, housing, jobs, and reduce coffee smuggling on Lake Kivu. The cooperative is also an important promoter of women’s and Pygmy rights in their region.
We believe community is local and global. Help us support these awesome folks in the Democratic Republic of the Congo by ordering some of their excellent coffee.
