The Black Crow presents: 

The sweet aroma of marzipan fills the air, and is soon joined by gorgeous notes of dried dates and dark chocolate… 

Flying high over the extraordinary vistas of the mighty Mount Nyiragongo and the gorgeous Lake Kivu flowing beside it, one can observe something that makes the view even more beautiful: it’s the luscious coffee plantations and the local farmers working hard to keep them at their best. This wasn’t always so: only a few decades ago, these lands were ravaged by volcanic eruptions and devastating civil wars… The people of Congo are now starting to smile again though: what gives them joy is cultivating unique coffees that numerous connoisseurs all over the world love and appreciate.
