    I've really enjoyed the Perkatory coffees that have come as part of the Connecticut Advent Calendar so I was looking forward to this one as the lsat one. I just struggle with Congo.

    This coffee has some pleasant characteristics and delivers on the grapefruit/floral/chocolate promise. I think drinks smooth and clean. But overall, I don't think it has a major winning characteristic that would make you want to drink it every day.

    Cupping Method:Green Kettle Advent, Coffee #24

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Democratic Republic of Congo
Congolese coffee, grown predominantly in the eastern regions of the Democratic Republic of Congo, is known for its vibrant acidity, medium body, and complex flavors. The fertile soil, high elevations, and diverse microclimates of the region contribute to a unique flavor profile that includes fruity, floral, and chocolatey notes.
Bean Source Region: Kivu
The Kivu Lake coffee growing region, located along the picturesque shores of Lake Kivu in the African Great Rift Valley, straddles the borders of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. This area is renowned for its rich volcanic soil, high altitude, and ideal climate, which create the perfect environment for cultivating premium coffee beans. The region's Arabica coffee plants, grown at elevations ranging from 1,500 to 2,000 meters above sea level, benefit from the perfect combination of warm days and cool nights, allowing the coffee cherries to develop slowly and enhancing the beans' flavor profiles. The coffee from the Kivu Lake region is cherished by connoisseurs worldwide for its exceptional taste, characterized by bright acidity, complex fruity notes, and a distinctively velvety mouthfeel.
