Anodyne Coffee + Democratic Republic of the Congo

Anodyne Coffee + Democratic Republic of the Congo

Steph went on vacation to Milwaukee and brought back a bag of Anodyne Coffee. First she tells us the story of the marathon running founder that has built an incredibly successful business in Milwaukee over the last 25 years.

Then we try a coffee from Anodyne, a single-origin coffee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a region that is hard to get coffee from due to the ongoing political instability of the country. In this episode we learn about the history of the DRC and how it has shaped the current situation today. Steph also tells about coffee growing in the DRC and the challenges that farmers face getting their coffee exported. We’re not going to lie, this episode is a real bummer. But Steph tells a captivating story and it’s important that we bring awareness to the hardships that the coffee farmers face.
