DR Congo - North Kivu - Hutwe Wet Mill

Ataraxia Coffee Company

Regular price $5.00

Congolese coffee has previously been halted in its production due to civil conflicts. Although not as well known as other African coffees, we believe that it deserves more credit. Our Congo offers a chocolate body, fruity-sweet cup prevalence, and a citric top note. Great for drip and cold brew. We personally enjoy it as a tart/bright espresso.
