For the past 8 years, we’ve launched a winter espresso celebrating strength and the power of community. The story has evolved since our first Strong coffee in 2012, but the purpose has always been the same. That together, by supporting one another, we are stronger.
This coffee is from the Women’s Section of the Coopade cooperative in Kirindera, DR Congo. The incredible women behind this coffee are using it to make a stand against the ongoing atrocities in their region and create opportunities for young people to rebuild the communities.
Stone-fruit acidity and warming aromatic spices roll into a mouthwatering sweetness, a sure favourite for colder days when we need to tap into our inner strength. This coffee is delicious with or without milk. We love its complexity and lingering sweetness as an americano or longer black drink.
£1 for every bag of Inner Strength sold will be donated by Extract to their Grounds Up Communities!!
