About the coffee
This coffee is a bourbon variety grown at 1600m near Lake Kivu in Congo. Washed coffee is often praised for its purity. This method allows you to taste all the vibrant notes and distinct flavours of the country and variety of origin. The clarity is mainly due to the fact that the pulp is removed before drying. The flavour profile has a good balance of sweet raisin and golden caramel combined with fruity and tart clementine.
