Transparency Series - Congo Umoja
Since the inception of Anchor Coffee, we have strived for equitable sourcing practices. Lifting up the farmers is at the core of our roasting operations mission, So when we connected with Mighty Peace Coffee, we knew that we had found a great sourcing partner to further that mission. Mighty Peace coffee is a fully integrated social impact coffee company that provides us with the highest quality specialty coffee from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Partnering with them gives us the opportunity to not only share amazing coffees, but to share stories of Congolese farmers to inspire human connection, and to break the cycle of poverty and conflict through economic transformation and advocacy.
