We proudly support projects that improve the economic sustainability of the coffee farming communities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Cajary Majlis is inspired to launch a line of Mutombo #55 Coffee with beans sourced from Africa, including the DRC for two reasons: To introduce you to our delicious coffee while supporting poor farming communities where a majority of the workers are women who serve as the glue in their families and communities, and to help our local partners bring you coffee sourced from farms and cooperatives using sustainable and fair-trade practices.
We proudly support projects that improve the economic sustainability of the DRC coffee farming communities where our beans are sourced.
It’s no secret that the Democratic Republic of the Congo, located in Central Africa, is resource rich; cherished land filled with copper, diamonds, and gold, and abundant with some of the world’s best Arabica and Robusta green beans.
DRC coffee production was nationalized in the 1970s and grew successfully up to the early 1990s, by which time the DRC was producing 120,000 tonnes per year.
We are lending our hand to help revitalize the DRC's reputation as a key resource of high-quality coffee.
Cajary Majlis works with organizations (NGOs) and other agencies who have been working with coffee cooperatives in the Eastern and Southern regions of Africa to improve the lives of coffee producers by providing trade and training opportunities to ensure they receive sustainable and fair wages.
With the support of the coffee farming community, Cajary Majlis is expanding its efforts to revitalize the DRC’s coffee industry with our latest project – the introduction of branded specialty and blended coffees, with beans sourced directly from fertile African coffee-growing regions, including the DRC.
