2nd Annual Saveur du Kivu Competition Showcasing DRC Coffees
Discussions will include policy and industry practices aligned to bring gender equality and increased benefit to small scale growers as means to provide peace and prosperity to a region with huge growth potential for the production of high quality arabica coffees. The specialty coffee industry in DRC is proving to be a successful strategy in bringing about economic stability and peace throughout the fertile highlands of Congo. Last years’ historic event saw over 30 coffee growing organizations throughout the DRC, submitting samples. It was the first time in history that a representative sampling of specialty coffees in the country were objectively evaluated by a team of coffee professionals. Saveur du Kivu is proving to be an important cornerstone in the foundation of DRC’s specialty coffee industry already known to produce some of the finest arabica coffees in the world.
