Bean North's newest coffee! The coffee of the month March is Sopacdi from DR Congo. This delicious coffee from Africa is grown on the Bulenga peninsula of Lake Kivu, near the town of Minova. Sopacdi unites farmers from different ethnic groups – they speak Kirundi, Kihavu or Kinyarwanda – yet they are united in their vision to improve their families lives and communities through coffee. A delicious sweet, bright and clean coffee with flavours of barley, sugar and lemon. Perfect for any time of day!
Monika Firl, Cooperative Coffees’ Producer Relations Manager, wrote an important and interesting article about her recent experiences in Honduras. The most recent annual Roaster-Producer assembly at the Café Organico Marcala headquarters, was intended to demonstrate that organic solutions, true to the economic and cultural realities of small-scale farmers, are the most viable, long-term path for their sustainable livelihood.
Bean North's Cafe in the Woods is open during this holiday season!
