Knowledge base

DRC is considered to be one of the richest countries in the world in copper, gold, diamonds, cobalt, uranium, coltan and oil.

The best Congo coffee feature heavy body, deep berry tones, hints of mandarin orange and stone fruit, and subtle hints of Christmas spice and we can’t agree more! The Arabica coffee beans in our #55 Champion’s Edition are grown on volcanic soil at an altitude of over 5,000 feet, between Lake Kivu and the Mitumba mountain range, in the DRC.  Its medium roast boasts of tasting notes of orange and dark chocolate topped off with an whiskey bourbon finish. Its distinctive taste makes it a drink for craft coffee and whiskey lovers, alike.

Most coffee aficionados have probably tried a number of different African coffees. The likely suspects would be Kenyan, Ethiopian and Tanzanian. There are, however, a number of other coffee producing countries in Africa that fly under the radar. The DRC is one of them.
