For me, coffees from Congo have a cup character reminiscent of coffees from Rwanda and Burundi. And I can reason this out for myself because all three countries surround Lake Kivu -so to me it’s a Lake Kivu, interior Africa cup characteristic. This cup characteristic typical of Congo is savory fruit coupled with a fruit tartness or acidity and hints of earth. For this particular cup (Congo Sopacdi), I find tart red apple, hints of a tart red mango, and a malty -slightly earthy finish. The body is fairly big and syrupy. This cup is my current coffee crush in the shop and replaces the Burundi Gitwenge.

 

Instead of boring you with a bunch of regurgitated secondhand facts and details (and also selecting only a few), I thought I would just link you to the importer who secured this coffee for us for a complete set of details on this coffee and the region. http://www.cafeimports.com/beanology/view/sopacdi-fully-washed-flo-id-26275-cbc-cd-bio-143-grainpro-4368

 

Since I’ve never been to Congo (my partner will be close this summer when they visit Rwanda) I rely solely on the facts provided and the finished cup. I hope you enjoy this coffee.
