The return of the Congolese 

coffee industry


Conflict has plagued the DRC for decades. Intense competition for control over mining areas led to the proliferation of armed rebel groups in the 90s. In recent years, the Congolese-led international peace movement to end the mineral conflicts has led to a shift: local economies are slowly transitioning from conflict, returning to ethical and sustainable business practices. The DRC'S rich tradition of specialty coffee has been preserved and is now becoming the industry’s best kept ‘secret’.
