Behind the Beans

Umoja is Swahili for “Solidarity”

 Umoja grows in South Kivu and is a product of the hard work of over 11,600 members. Certified Fairtrade and Organic cooperatives like the ones we work with have helped provide stability in the coffee sector in a region that is often fraught with coffee smuggling. For many of the members, coffee is a key source of income and helps promote rights for marginalized groups.

A Farmer’s Story 

Victorina is one of the farmers who contributes to Umoja. She built a house, purchases clothes for her family, and feels secure in knowing that she now doesn’t need to travel to find a buyer, because that places her at risk of attack. Victorina is now able to pay for her children’s school fees as well as buy her own fields.

Grind Types Explained
Why Does Grind Type Matter?
 
Grind size affects the extraction rate of the coffee and therefore affects the flavor of the final brew. Because of the water flow rate and pressure variations between brew methods, different grind sizes suit different brew methods better. You'll want to pick the right one for optimum flavor.

What do I need to know about shipping chocolate?
Shipping chocolate is a delicate adventure - especially in summer.

Our chocolate is especially vulnerable to the effects of temperature fluctuation because we avoid the use of all stabilizers, preservatives, and fillers.

Our summer shipping protocol is currently in place:

  • We only ship chocolate on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Orders placed between Thursday and Sunday will ship the following Monday.

  • We occasionally make the tough call to postpone shipping on hot days. We will always update you accordingly.

  • We recommend all chocolate orders are sent by USPS Priority Mail Express.

  • We cannot offer refunds on chocolate shipped during the summer using USPS Ground or USPS Priority Shipping.

  • While we can only offer refunds to customers who have selected USPS Priority Mail Express shipping for their chocolate, please contact us if you are unhappy in any way with your order and we’ll do what we can to make it right.

See our FAQ page for more details on chocolate and temperature!
