The story behind this coffee:
East of Congo
A few years ago, almost no one had ever heard of the specialty coffee phenomenon in the East of Congo. However, in 2017 our green coffee buyer discovered a state of the art washing station with organic fertilisation, reforestations schemes and an amazing coffee with a cupping score of 87+.
