      This coffee comes to use from the northern slopes along Lake Kivu in the Virunga National Park. This is one of the most picturesque places in the world for coffee production. The park provides an amazing habitat for wildlife, being one of the most biologically diverse regions in the entire world. The star of the park is the Mountain Gorilla, which are projected after being the target of poachers. Armed conflict in the region also threatened the farmers and wildlife alike, but with increased interest in coffee growing the land and population is beginning to heal. If you enjoy strong, flavorful coffees from Africa this is one you wont want to miss. 


*Our preferred brewing methods for this coffee are Chemex  with a 1:10 coffee to water ratio
