About This Coffee

This coffee comes from the Kawa Kabuya Cooperative located outside of the city of Butembo in North Kivu. Kawa Kabuya Cooperative is part of a larger network of 4 cooperatives made up of around 4,800 farmer members total: Kawa Kabuya, Kawa Kanzururu, Kawa Mabera, and Kawa Kenja. The Kawa Kabuya Cooperative itself is comprised of as many as 20 participating micro mills where the coffee is wet milled before moving to the CAFEKIT dry mill in Butembo. Kawa Kabuya and the other affiliated cooperatives are a product of relationships between local farmers and international NGO's who's main goal is to improve farmer livelihood. By increasing the amount of specialty grade coffee produced for these lots, the cooperative is aiming to have doubled member incomes by 2017. Coffees contributing to this lot are harvested at altitudes between 1500-1800 masl.

This coffee is one of Josh's favorites: "An excellent example of how good DR Congo coffees can be: super clean, juicy hard candy, and crisp green melon."

This coffee is one of Todd's favorites: "This coffee is loaded with stone fruit flavors of peach & cherry, along with expressive acidity and nice structure."
