Looking for a tasty dark roast that you can be proud of buying? Do you think that your purchases should mean something? Pure Origin has you covered with our sustainable Congolese coffee!
Pure Origin’s Congolese coffee is an organic Fair-Trade certified dark roast with citrus notes, hailing from the South Kivu region and benefitting Mighty Peace Coffee, a movement which seeks to end mineral conflict throughout the country and the brutality that goes along with it. A portion of the sales of each cup goes towards funding education for the Congolese people, providing clothing, paying debts, and improving the living conditions of its people. Read on to see how you can help Pure Origin and Mighty Peace make a difference today!
Mighty Peace Coffee
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has always had a rich tradition of specialty coffee. As groups like Mighty Peace help the country transition away from the brutality of the mineral conflicts, the DRC has had more resources to devote to the cultivation of its incredible beans. Alongside Pure Origin, Mighty Peace aims to stimulate the industry economically and raise the living standards of its hardworking farmers. This will help end the cycle of poverty, conflict, and injustice that has plagued the country for decades. As the people thrive, so does the coffee industry! Many people previously caught up in the mineral conflict have become farmers and now proudly contribute to the now-booming economy.
Since its foundation in 2018, the women-and-minority-owned Mighty Peace group has made major strides for equality and environmentalism. As the DRC shifts towards ethical and sustainable business practices, the coffee industry has truly come alive! Land that was once lost to the mineral conflict has begun to flourish with coffee trees and a bustling trade. As a result, we can begin spreading the word about the truly incredible Congolese coffee! Try a cup today and see why it is quickly becoming the secret favorite of coffee connoisseurs worldwide!
Why Pure Origin?
Finally, like all of our coffee, our Congolese variety has sustainable impact and is a single origin coffee. This means it comes exclusively from the South Kivu region and created with respect for the environment. Additionally, we care for our hardworking growers and farmers and give them a premium price for every bean. Mighty Peace and Pure Origin commit to sustainable environmental practices and engage in practices that support soil health and biodiversity. Per the company’s website, Mighty Peace’s policies favor regenerative practices, such as “conservation tillage [and] cover cropping, through which farmers increase the organic matter in soils over time to replenish the land and sequester the carbon from the atmosphere.” These small steps ensure that the environment is taken care of and can continue to produce incredible beans for generations to come!
At Pure Origin, we believe that every purchase should give something back to the world. No one should have to choose between their favorite brew and social and environmental responsibility. We are very proud of what we have achieved so far, and we look forward to continue helping in the DRC and beyond! Try a cup and help make a difference, all while sipping a delicious cup of dark coffee!
