Rise Up is now proud to roast coffee from the Democratic Republic of Congo. This spectacular coffee is the had work of the nearly 12,000 members of the Umoja (“Solidarity”) Cooperative. Located in the forested highlands in the Kivu region, this coffee benefits from the mineral rich volcanic soil found between Lake Kivu and the Mitumba mountain range.

In the 10+ years since forming the all-female operated cooperative, Umoja coffee has helped to improve the living conditions of its members, providing schooling, housing & jobs, while also promoting women’s and pygmy rights. The Umoja farmers have also won awards for their dedication to sustainable cultivation techniques.
