About the bean

Our Congo offering is from the Kawa Kabuya Cooperative in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo. For a third year in a row, the Kawa Kabuya Cooperative has won the annual Taste of Harvest Competition - the African alternative to the Cup of Excellence competition organized by the African Fine Coffee Association.

Grown at an altitude of 1,584-1,800 metres above sea level and dried on raised beds, our Congo Kivu 3 Buhoya comes from the Buhoya micro-lot. Micro-lots are the "cream of the crop" of the harvest - uniquely crafted coffee separated from the rest for its exceptional qualities. K3 or Kivu 3 is the highest grading for washed arabica from Congo.

What you can expect

A creamy body, long aftertaste, and a bright, fruity acidity with lemon notes.
