The Virunga Washing Station focuses on providing training to coffee farmers and access to the international coffee market. Coffee travels to the Virunga washing station where where it is milled and then trucked to the port of Mombasa, a 2 to 4 day journey across two countries, Uganda and Kenya. The Congo coffee industry used to be much more prominent. But, due to civil war (1998-2003) and continued political instability, the industry all but disappeared. Cooperatives are starting to establish and grow to revitalize the industry and bring back a well-needed source of income to Congolese of North and South Kivu. We were blown away by the quality, body, and fruit intensity of the way this coffee cupped.
