In recent years DR Congo is re-emerging as a coffee origin. This is the 3rd crop we have purchased in as many years and the region is showing us what it is capable of. Many small cooperatives are now in action and working together to increase the quality of their coffee. This coffee is from the Cocaska Cooperative which was founded in 2018 by 5 small holder farmers. It today has over 500 members, who together pool their money to independently build their own washing station. Their focus on high-quality processing has produced this complex & clean cup.
You’ll find me drinking this as a long black, allowing some of the amazing chocolate, citrus and florals notes to come to the forefront. But for more syrupy goodness, definitely give it a go as an espresso too. You will not be disappointed!
