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.

Girls Who Grind Coffee

Bath

GWGC was founded by Fi O'Brien and Casey Lalonde; Casey is from Upstate New York originally, and Fi is from Melbourne Australia, but they both met and became friends in their now hometown of Frome, Somerset.

Having both had different experiences of the coffee industry, Fi and Casey connected over their shared love of both coffee and the coffee world, but as they got to know each other more, they found that they both felt that there were many areas of the industry that needed improving- a big one for them both being equality.

Despite having had different journeys within the coffee, both Casey and Fi had felt that, as women, they had been a little pushed out of the industry that they had both so loved and given so much to.
