Foundry Coffee Roasters - CPCK Co-operative Democratic Republic of Congo

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

This coffee is something quite distinctive. Hints of dates and prunes deliver a dark, earthy sweetness which sits nicely alongside floral tea and black pepper. A zingy grapefruit acidity finishes everything off nicely. This is a very versatile coffee which suits all brew methods.

From Foundry Coffee Roasters:

"This is the first time that we have roasted coffee from the Democratic Republic of Congo and it certainly won’t be the last. We’ve been hugely impressed by this coffee already. We developed this roast as part of the “LSOL’ subscription on Coffee Forums UK, you can read about how it went down here. DRC is an exciting origin. Farmers there have only recently been able to access the speciality coffee market and as a result, they’ve reportedly been able to triple their income within the space of a year. Hopefully we’ll continue to see high quality coffee emerging over the next few years and we can’t wait to find more tasty coffee from this part of the world.

This particular co-operative has around 1500 members. Each farmer has a plot around one hectare in size and the co-operative owns a number of washing stations along the shores of Lake Kivu. The coffee is hand pulped and washed and then it is taken to Mombassa for export, a 12 day journey!"
