DR Congo Latumba
£6.20 – £22.75
Blue Mountain, 1700-2000 masl
Bright Acidity, Lime, Silky Mouthfeel
We found this coffee to have a bright and complex acidity, with notes of citrus fruits in particular limes, and a refreshingly silky mouthfeel that is very tea like. Exceptionally sweet and bright as espresso, clean and juicy through filter.
The blue mountain varietal is originally a mutation of the typical varietal from Jamaica, highly prized for its cup quality. We found this coffee to have a bright and complex acidity, with notes of citrus fruits in particular limes, and a refreshingly silky mouthfeel that is very tea like. Fantastically clean through a V60 brewer.
Location & Farmer
The Latumba washing station is located on the shores of Lake Kivu, and the coffee is grown by members of the surrounding AMKA CO-OP, based in the Minova district, southern Kivu, Eastern Congo, who produce the blue mountain varietal from 1700-2000 metres above sea level.
The ripe cherries are delivered to the Latumba washing station from the CO-OP. The cherries are de-pulped to remove the majority of the outer fruit. The coffee is then soaked in fermentation tanks for 12-18 hours, then sorted for density by using water channels (different densities have different sugar content/ripeness) and soaked for a further 12 hours, then drained and dried on raised beds for 12-16 days. The ‘parchment’ coffee is then transported to the Coffeelac dry mill in Goma where it is rested and dry milled.
Our roasting day is Tuesday, please order by Midnight Monday so we can deliver your coffee by Friday. If you need to order outside of our roasting days, please contact us.
