Café du Jour 100% arabica DR Congo
Processing and transporting coffee in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is complicated. The country has been ravaged by civil wars for years, resulting in instability and a lack of infrastructure. But a change is underway. With support from Coffeelac, the largest processor and exporter of coffee beans in eastern DRC, the Cooperative des Agriculteurs et Eleveurs de Kalehe pour le Development durable (CAEKD) has been working to improve the yields and livelihoods of its 150+ members .
Specialty grade coffee. Suitable for both espresso and filter coffee. Light to medium roast. With notes of cranberry and chocolate.
The coffee beans are picked by hand from one of the 150+ members of Cooperative des Agriculteurs et Eleveurs de Kalehe pour le Development durable (CAEKD). Then the beans are taken to the mini washing station on the island of Idjwi, which is run by Coffeelac. The raw beans are then carefully sorted on arrival and undergo various checks during the washing process.
After drying, the harvest is taken to Goma Mill. This mill, owned by Coffeelac, is considered the most modern processing facility in the region.
Café du jour Coffee beans
The coffee beans of Café du Jour's own brand are roasted on a small scale by a specialist roaster. The beans are roasted and stocked weekly, so the roasting date is always recent. The burn date is therefore noted on the label of the packaging.
