Congo Kivu

Africa Region - Congo Kivu
SINGLE ORIGIN - 100% CONGO KIVU COFFEE:

Due to civil unrest of recent history, the coffee farms near Lake Kivu were abandoned for some time. Now, the region has seen farmers coming together to plant new coffee trees and cooperatives have been set up to re-build the much needed coffee infrastructure. The mouthfeel has a pleasant bitterness in the finish like you'd expect from stone fruit and orange zest.

CUPPING NOTES:

Heavy body with deep berry tones, with hints of mandarin orange, stone fruit (such as peach and apricot) and subtle hints of spice.

PROCESSING AND ROAST LEVEL:

Beans are wet-processed (or washed), where the fruit covering the beans is removed before they are dried, to ensure a clean taste and bright acidity. Our Congo Kivu beans are then given a Light roast by one of Teasia's artisanal roasters.

FRESH SPECIALTY ROASTED COFFEE:

We roast all our beans in small batches using the most advanced (and environmentally friendly) technology available to develop the unique characteristics and flavor profiles of each coffee bean. All freshly roasted beans are packed and sealed within 24 hours to ensure maximum freshness and quality.

STORAGE AND BREWING:

To preserve your beans' fresh roasted flavor for as long as possible, we recommend they be stored in an air-tight container (or very tightly seal the bag it comes in), and keep it at room temperature. Avoid light to compromise the taste of your coffee, keep them in a dark and cool location. For best results, we recommend grinding your Teasia coffee no more than 15 minutes prior to brewing!
