Dr Congo kawa kanzururu
March - July
1100 – 1600m
At the edge of the Ituri forest and a day’s walk from Virunga National Park’s snow capped Rwenzori mountains, the 839 farmers of Kawa Kanzaruru are collaborating in an economic model for peace and stability in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Formed in 2014, the goal of the cooperative is to help coffee producers in their pursuit of sustainability and to access international markets, getting more for their coffees. Kawa Kanzaruru means “white coffee” in the local language, named for the snow on towering MT Rwenzori and also for the processing that makes their coffee so clean and of such high quality.
Virunga is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to critically endangered mountain gorillas that are threatened by poachers, deforestation and armed conflict. Choosing this particular coffee helps to directly support the Virunga Alliance by providing jobs in the area, protecting biodiversity, and guarding the gorillas.
