The Summer Solstice CoffeeStory
Our sweet Summer Solstice coffee beans are sourced from the South Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Muungano Co-op that grows them are focused on gender justice for their female farmers and integrating different ethnic groups into their operation. "Muungano" actually means "Togetherness" in the Swahili language. We hope this coffee brings you and yours together even when we have to be apart.
We boldly admit that our Light Roast is on the darker-side of this description. Many coffees do not develop well at this stage, tending to be acidic or even astringent, and sometimes featuring strong grassy or vegetable tastes. However, a few coffees fare well with this roast level and have a bright, eye-opening sassiness to them with just a touch of sweet.
