Lake Kivu is one of the ‘African Great Lakes’ and it is nestled on the border between the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda, located in the Albertine Rift.
The aromatic flavours of this wonderful hand-picked, wet washed and sun dried Bourbon coffee, are suggestive of a rich buttery sweet toffee caramel, red berry and citrus notes along with the hint of spices such as clove and cinnamon.
The buttery creaminess of it’s rich body carries nicely into the aftertaste. The high altitudes and nitrogen rich volcanic soils can be found across the country, creating excellent conditions for the production of the high quality beans that we love to roast and taste!
