Some intensive energy has been invested to trek this organic coffee out of the D.R. Congo. The unique cup features florals, molasses and cloves. It is sweet, juicy with orange-like acidity on entry, smooth milk chocolate at centre.
This coffee is grown by small-scale farmers in the eastern part of DR Congo, near Lake Edward and north of Lake Kivu.
Virunga operates washing stations throughout the regions. Farmers bring ripe coffee cherries to one of the washing stations and are paid in cash for their harvest.
