Congo (DCR) Hutwe Coffee

The Kivu Provinces, located in the far east of the country, are situated near the equator and the highlands of the volcanic Rwenzori mountain range, part of the Albertine rift, Africa’s largest tectonic fault line. The terroir provides an ideal environment for speciality arabica cultivation, with plentiful sunshine and rainfall; high elevations; and rich, fertile volcanic soils. The 2 provinces are positioned north and south of Lake Kivu, one of Africa’s Great Lakes. Kivu drains into the Congo River and in turn, feeds the Congo basin:

the second-largest rainforest in the world, a key carbon sink and one of the richest sources of biodiversity on earth.
