Baristocracy DR Congo - Baristocracy Coffee

Baristocracy’s latest coffee beans come from DR Congo’s North and South Kivu provinces, which run along the banks of Lake Kivu. Smallholder farmers are scattered amongst the Mitumba Mountains, where their communities face both geographical and political challenges. SOPACDI Co-ooperative offers over 10,000 of these farmers the opportunity to improve their coffee quality and access the fair trade of the specialty market, alongside infrastructural development and solidarity and empowerment for both women and native tribal communities.

This fully-washed Congolese coffee provides incredible sugar cane sweetness and a rich caramel body that is perfectly balanced by strong lime acidity.

Baristocracy is a family business bringing Australian speciality coffee expertise to the North East. Australian born Alex was raised in the industry and, together with his Geordie partner Kate, has transformed his background in roasting, blending and barista training into one of the North East’s favourite coffee roasters. Roasting only speciality grade beans, they supply to numerous coffee shops around the region (including our LOCAL's coffee shelf) as well as producing beautifully complex bags for the aspiring home brewer.
