Congo Kivu Magage Goma is sourced from a 170-acre estate located along the western edge of Lake Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The estate forms an important protective buffer for the Virunga National Park, Africa’s first national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, which was established in 1925 to protect the population of mountain gorillas. Baraka Magage, a successful business man in the nearby city Goma, decided to return to the village where he was born and raised to purchase an abandoned coffee farm. Over the last four years, Mr. Magage has dedicated much of his efforts to renovating the estate with new coffee plants. He has given surplus seedling from his nursery to his neighbors hoping they will also succeed in their renovation efforts. Mr. Magage hopes to build a washing station in the coming year.
