Kirindera Women's Peace, DRC


The Kirindera Women’s Peace Coffee of the COOPADE Association aims to bring peace to Virunga National Park and across DRC. By growing coffee, the Kirindera women are employing young people and providing them with an alternative to joining the armed groups that are destabilising the region.

This absolutely delicious coffee with a gorgeous buttery (chewy) mouthfeel ticks all of the boxes. It’s unctuous and sweet and finishes with lovely rhubarb tartness and floral aroma.

2020 was the first year in which some of Coopade’s coffee produced by women has been kept separate from the rest of the co-operative’s production and marketed with it’s own identity. It is being produced and sold with pride – pride in it’s high quality and in the
organisational efforts that have made it possible. It is being sold with a small premium that will boost the women’s incomes.

Gisele Kahindo, of the women’s section, was asked why the women of Kirindera chose to call their coffee Women’s Peace Coffee. She replied “It’s because of the atrocities that have been committed and which continue to be committed in Eastern Congo. It’s so that by growing coffee women can say no to what is happening – and in particular by employing young people we can provide them with an alternative so that they are no longer drawn to join the armed groups that are destabilising Virunga National Park. We want to see peace for everyone living in DRC. and above all for those living on the borders of the Virunga National Park”.

Excellent coffee. A layered flavour; smooth, but not buttery (which always sounds an off-putting description for something you plan to

Ali Hendessi

Finely balanced taste with great aroma coffee.

Sweet with a nice tartness

I'm not very good at tasting-note words. But it's really nice! I got sweetness and a little bit of tart(?) rhubarby flavour.
