Our freshest edition of Fucking Strong Coffee from the Congolese island of Idjwi, in the heart of Lake Kivu. Floral, fruity, and fun.

Stunted by their remote location and lack of infrastructure, coffee farmers on Idjwi resorted to smuggling their crop into neighboring Rwanda for decades -- a dangerous ordeal with little payoff. In 2013, local growers formed the island's first cooperative -- CPNCK -- and finally began selling their coffee independently. Driven by their mission of securing a more peaceful, independent future for the island's youth, the cooperative has made a serious name for itself amongst specialty buyers over the last several harvests. In the process, they've basically eliminated the island's illicit coffee trade and improved the livelihoods of thousands of farmers and their families. 

These beans are from CPNCK's micro-mill Ngula, and, damn, are they sweet. They make downright delicious filter coffee and cold brew, and also hold up nicely as a light, fruity espresso.
