Why It's Exceptional
This coffee is the result of a bold international effort to help the smallholder farmers of Muungagno export extremely high quality coffees to the top roasters around the world. In a short period of time they have developed the capacity to produce very delicious coffee using sustainble agricultural techniques, in addition to having a significant community impact with a strong focus on gender equality and women's rights.

What It Tastes Like
Taste Leaning towards the sweet end of the spectrum, especially as it cools, with fairly subtle citric acidity adding balance to the cup.
Aromas Decadent toffee and caramel are the hallmarks of excellent Congolese coffees and this coffee has them in spades with dried fruit (fig/date) and stone fruit (nectarine) secondary aromas
Body Very Smooth and creamy with medium weight.
