KIVU NOIR SINGLE ESTATE - 12 months - SAVE 10%
The World's Most Superior, Rwandan Red Bourbon Arabica, Medium Roast, Coffee. A premium handcrafted aromatic coffee, with notes of honey, a medley of fruits, nuts and spices. Made with meticulous attention to detail – resulting in a highest quality, uniquely African coffee – rich and complex, yet delicate and pure.
In the processing of our coffee, our staff, predominantly women from the local communities, pick and sort the ripe red coffee cherries by hand. They then sift through the cherries after dry milling to remove any that are less than absolutely perfect – because only the best beans are selected to ensure the best possible flavor.
The beans are then roasted by our expert roaster, Maria, who tends to the coffee beans as they tumble, swell, and change color from sage to straw and then chestnut brown. She makes sure to pull them from the hot drum at just the right time, sensitive to the difference that even a few seconds can make. Through this meticulous craft of roasting, tasting, and adjusting, Kivu noir develop the coffees rich and unique flavor.
