About This Coffee

This coffee is from a cooperative located in the Kalehe territory on the southern side of the great Lake Kivu. Coffee has been grown in this area for over 60 year, but, due to unrest in the region, the farms have been left abandoned for some time.

With peace returning to the area, farmers have returned to plant new coffee shrubs and cooperatives like this one have been setup to provide infrastructure.

Coffee grown in Congo tends to be more rustic, but we have found this coffee to be very clean and nuanced with notes of citrus and spice.
