With high altitudes and beautiful terrain, the western shores of Lake Kivu is an ideal region for cultivating exceptional specialty coffees and the flavor profile of this coffee is evidence of that. We taste a wide array of flavors from candied citrus and kiwi to cacao nibs and lemongrass. It also carries a lighter body and crisp finish which makes this coffee excellent for folks who like a little more acidity in their cup. SOPACDI and the more than 11,000 farmer members that make up the co-op are a critical part of the economic and cultural healing that Congo is working towards after years of civil war and conflict, and Conscious strives to make their partnership with SOPACDI a positive step in that process.

I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
