Tasting Notes: Cane Sugar, Green Tea, Lemongrass, Jasmine
A multi-layered, floral-toned cup with leading notes of bergamot and jasmine, supported by rich cocoa nib throughout. This coffee has confident, balanced acidity and a viscous, full mouthfeel. The finish is particularly luxurious, fulfilling the promise of its rich aromas and flavors. Long story short: We're loving this coffee!
About DR Congo
The farming community in North Kivu (at the borders of Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda) has become accustomed to adversity. Armed incursion, corruption and disease are part of everyday life, but in coffee they see hope. Coffee is one of the only cash crops these producers grow. It puts money on the table, brings stability to the community and enables farmers to plan.
The farming community also borders the Virunga National Park. Cocoa and palm oil are also grown in the lower zones. The conditions here are ideal for growing coffee: deep, fertile, volcanic soil, high altitude and adequate rainfall.
