FUPROCAF–Ubangi held its inaugural General Assembly as an official coffee cooperative in DR Congo on March 25, 2022! Over 50 coffee producers and leaders met in Karawa and spent the entire day together in dialog and presentations. Renée participated fully as an Advisory Board Member, including detailed explanations of the transition from project to cooperative. This year’s harvest is approximately 300 metric tons (661,387 pounds). Most is already spoken for, purchased by 2 major buyers in Congo and other individual enterprises! PCP is blessed to be able to export about 3 metric tons (twice what we purchased last year). Karawa coffee will be available, with shipping processes operating smoothly, by early summer.
