Supporting survivors of sexual violence in DRC

For every bag of Organic Congo Coffee purchased, Equal Exchange donates $1 to the Panzi Foundation to support survivors of sexual violence in the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Congo Coffee Project donations fund infrastructure development at the Panzi Bulenga Clinic in South Kivu and vocational training for survivors at the Maison Dorcas aftercare center. Here, women learn skills that help foster financial independence and stability. For this project we are proud to partner with Congolese farmer cooperatives who grow these beans along the shores of Lake Kivu in eastern Congo. The combination of rich volcanic soil and high altitudes allow the coffee cherries to mature slowly, leading to incredible sweetness.

What do our roast names mean?

At our solar-powered roastery in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, our worker-owner team batch roasts and conducts production cuppings daily to bring out the best characteristics in each harvest. With four primary roast levels, we think there’s a favorite here for everyone.

Medium Roast: expect the unique citrus, nutty, fruity, or floral notes of each coffee to shine through.

Full City Roast: you’ll get a bit more of the caramel flavor that comes from the roasting process.

Vienna Roast: starts to bring the smoky aroma and smooth and rich body of a darker roast.

French Roast: with the natural oils fully expressed, it’s an intensely dark and smoky experience akin to dark chocolate.
