COUNTER CULTURE BUCHIRO CONGO

DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA

The challenges of working in the Democratic Republic of the Congo can be staggering at times, however, so is the potential to produce staggering coffee quality in this Central African nation. This organic coffee comes to us from the Buchiro washing station found on the shores of beautiful Lake Kivu. Buchiro—which is run by the Muungano Cooperative—could not be better positioned to execute the potential quality we are talking about: rich volcanic soils, local Bourbon varieties, and breathtaking elevations converge in this selection to bring vibrant flavors of clementine, black tea, and tropical fruit.
