Quality over quantity was the moto I grew up with and I continue the philosophy with each micro batch! I roast in 5 pound batches, and that means more attention for each coffee bean. The small batch roasting provides more flavor nuances in your cup allowing you to experience coffee from a new perspective. Try the taste of micro roasting!

The farming community in North Kivu has become accustomed to adversity. Armed incursion, corruption and disease are part of everyday life, but in coffee they see hope. Coffee is one of the only cash crops these producers grow. It puts money on the table, brings stability to the community and enables farmers to plan.
The Kawa Kanzururu Cooperative is an exciting new Coop with a network of 24 micro-mills along the western rim of the Rwenzori Mountain Range. The benefit of working through a Coop is of huge importance to smallholders since North Kivu is landlocked. Plugging Congolese coffee into the global supply chain means transporting it to the Port of Mombasa in Kenya to reach the sea. Thus, working collectively is essential. The Kawa Kanzururu Coop is also focused on expanded production and quality.
The farming community borders the Virunga National Park which occupies the Semliki River Valley in the 140 km stretch between lakes Edward and Albert in the westernmost arm of the Great Rift Valley. Cocoa and palm oil are also grown in the lower zones, and new crops such as chia seed are also starting to take root. The conditions here are ideal for growing coffee: deep, fertile, volcanic soil, high altitude and adequate rainfall.

Every coffee provides multiple flavor experiences depending on the temperature its roasted to. So, each bag is labeled with the origin and temperature to which that coffee was roasted to. This way you can find an origin and its roast profile that fits your taste preferences perfectly!
