The Soprocopiv coop is dedicated to sourcing and processing coffees from different farms around the North Kivu region. The coop was created in 2004 by a group of farmers who were motivated to improve their lives – specifically to improve education and healthcare services – through the production of specialty coffee. Their focus on good processing techniques that are supported by organic certification have led to development of better coffee that can be offered at a higher price level to the international market because of its quality. The coop members have the economic benefit of a sustainable income so that they can reinvest and continue to improve their techniques in planting, growing, and processing to ensure consistent, high quality coffee production.
