Fruity with milk chocolate, melon and floral flavors; sweet with fruit acidity and a smooth mouthfeel.


Altitude: 1500-2000 masl


This amazing coffee comes from a Fair Trade–certified cooperative located near Lake Kivu on the steep slopes of volcanic mountains. There are 975 growers represented by the group, which was formed in 2016. These producers grow coffee in volcanic soil, harvesting the cherries and delivering them the same day to the Kabrizi Washing Station for purchasing. At the mill, the coffee is depulped the day of delivery, fermented dry for 12 hours and then given a 24-hour wet fermentation or a "soak," and then washed three times to remove the mucilage. Coffee is then dried in mechanical dryers or raised beds for about 2–3 weeks.
