Rook Coffee launches Limited Release Congo
By: Rook Coffee
This organic coffee from the North Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is grown and processed by the Soprocopiv cooperative, a partnership between coffee farmers who work together in order to improve the quality of their production and their community. The Soprocopiv co-op was created in 2004 by farmers who aimed to specifically improve education and healthcare services through the production of specialty coffee.
The DRC is a relatively small specialty coffee growing origin, compared to is neighbors Ethiopia and Uganda. Congolese coffee has to overcome intense civil odds to be produced and exported.
"We love an opportunity to showcase a lesser-known growing region, especially when the coffee is as awesome and high quality as this one from Congo is," says Alex Bahamonde, Rook Coffee's Head of Production. "Our customers really loved our Congo offering last year and we think this year's offering makes for a great summer cup."
Limited Release Congo is a delicious, medium-roasted hot coffee with tasting notes of chocolate, coconut and pink grapefruit. On Aug. 15, Congo launches at all Rook Coffee retail locations by the cup and by the bag.
