Coffeelac is a business designed to help rejuvenate the DRC’s coffee export industry. It is owned and run by the Nicolaides family who have been involved in the African coffee industry since 1965. In 2014, they built their second processing station in Goma, North Kivu. This station provides training and assistance to small household farmers in North and South Kivu as well as Oriental Province. The facility contains a warehouse and cupping lab and has helped local farmers increase export numbers as well as the quality of their coffee. Coffeelac provides agricultural training, access to finance and export opportunites for local coffee farmers.
This lot is Semi-washed, which means that the coffee cherries are picked when ripe, collected by Coffeelac and taken to the mill. The cherries are pulped with the use of water and dried without being soaked in fermentation tanks, which produces a sweet flavour profile.
