Roast Profile: Medium
Tasting Notes: Aromatic, smooth, dark chocolate, black pepper
Taste Description: Sweetly aromatic, juicy citrus, smooth milk chocolate, and exotic spice.
There are few coffees as complex as this offering from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This high-grown, hard bean coffee is processed by small scale farmers. Aromatic notes of tropical fruit, toasted nuts, sweet tobacco, dark chocolate, and a cacophony of brown-spices make this coffee our most thought-provoking. It’s delicious in a drip brewer, but such a dark horse in a French press or pour-over. It’s particularly wily and delicious in an AeroPress.

I always thought that coffee blends were best, but the single origin DR Congo is my top choice favourite coffee. I always announce to my coffee-loving friends what coffee I am serving. Their vote is DRC too.
But I blend it with Level Ground's Dark French Roast for the best cup of coffee on the planet.
This is the first Level Ground coffee I have tried. It has a pleasant flavour, but I find it a little bland and lacking in a well rounded, rich taste. It tastes watered down, somehow, with no satisfying boost of flavour after swallowing.
Lovely flavour. Full character without unwanted bitterness.
