Single-origin coffee
beans DR Congo Kivu

The prepared "DR Congo Kivu" coffee entices with an aroma of sweet marzipan and dried dates, while a note of fruity sweetness and an extremely subtle sourness of a citrus fruit unfolds in its taste. A long-lasting and pleasant aftertaste of dark chocolate lingers for some time after having a cup.

REGION
Kivu
Located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the region of Lake Kivu is renowned not only for its astounding beauty, but also for its unique soil, tropical heat and humidity. Coffee plantations cover the area near Mount Nyiragongo, a powerful volcano, where nutrient-rich soil, which is perfect for coffee farming, is found.

Nowadays, these farms are being rebuilt — this is a cause of enormous joy both for the locals, who can work in the farms and earn a decent living, and coffee lovers, who can once again enjoy the unique taste of the region's coffee.

Recommended brewing methods

Filter coffee maker

This coffee preparation method is perfect for those who enjoy longer coffee breaks and tea-like consistency of their coffee. Prepared in a filter coffee maker, the single-origin "DR Congo Kivu" coffee reveals the entire palette of aromas and tastes hidden inside it. Important: always use freshly ground coffee beans when preparing coffee!

Semi-automatic coffee machine

To the true lovers of espresso, we recommend preparing this coffee in a semi-automatic coffee machine. Prepared in this way, the "DR Congo Kivu" coffee will be particularly thick, while the sweetness of marzipan candies and the subtle sourness of lemon rind will be felt in its taste.

Automatic coffee machine

Because of its darker roast, the single-origin "DR Congo Kivu" coffee is perfect for automatic coffee machines, especially when they are used to prepare milk-based drinks. The predominant tasting notes — marzipan, dried dates and dark chocolate — go well with the natural sweetness of milk.
