Congo Kivu Decaf
This coffee comes from a Congo cooperative, located in the Kalehe territory on the western side of the great Lake Kivu. This area has had coffee planted for over 6 decades (mostly bourbon), but with the civil unrest of recent history, the coffee farms were left abandoned for some time.
The altitude is great for growing coffee, lying in the foothills of one of the volcanoes in the Albertine Rift Zone. There are currently about 1,500 coop members, each averaging about 1 hectare of Bourbon planted, with growing altitudes between 1500-1700 meters.
The SWP (Swiss Water Process) decaffeination method is an extremely delicate process, leaving a lot of those volatile compounds that affect flavour and aroma intact.
