|South Kivu Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo
Sweet and lively. Tea rose, salted caramel, watermelon, fresh-cut fir, tangerine zest in aroma and cup. Sweetly savory with brisk acidity; very full, satiny mouthfeel. Crisp finish with notes of tea rose and fresh-cut fir.
Certified organic and fair trade. Produced by members of the SOPACDI Cooperative, from the Blue Mountain, Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai varieties of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and pulp removed before drying). Located overlooking Lake Kivu, on the opposite side of the lake from Rwanda, this rapidly growing cooperative now has nearly 6,000 members and is succeeding in its goal to help heal wounds left by the latest in eastern Congo’s seemingly endless string of civil wars. JBC Coffee Roasters’ vision is simple: “let the coffee lead the way” through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with substantial premiums.
