Specialty Instant Coffee

We’ve all been there. On the road, desperate for good coffee, but there's none to be found…and there’s no way to brew your own. We’ve got the cure. Our new line of Instant Specialty Coffees are easy to make, incredibly tasty, and compact traveling companions.

Thanks to our friends at Swift Cup who used their proprietary freeze drying process, our instant coffees’ natural flavors and complexities still come shining through. 

Each Box contains 6 packets of freeze dried coffee. To brew, mix one packet of coffee with 10 ounces of hot water.

Congo Umoja

Umoja micro-lot selected by Mighty Peace Coffee, is grown in the Highlands along Lake Kivu. This African Great Lakes region is known for producing outstanding, high-scoring coffees, due to its unique geography and rich volcanic soil.

 

A team of agronomists and coffee experts from Mighty Peace Coffee carefully selected the highest scoring coffee cherries to create this specific micro-lot. They work with farmers to help improve their cup quality, and monitor coffee processing at the washing station to ensure the best practices are being followed.

By working with farms at the ground level, and by forming boutique micro-lots such as Umoja, they are able to help farmers sell their coffee at a higher price directly to roasters such as ourselves. The sale of Umoja has helped to improve the living conditions of its members—providing schooling, housing, jobs and reducing coffee smuggling on Lake Kivu, while upholding women’s and pygmy rights. Umoja producers won the SCAA sustainability award.
