Coffee Description

Descriptors abound for this sweet fruity coffee. Fragrant peach, melon, and pomegranate lead into flavor notes of raisin pie, candied black currants, and amaretto. Its bright, sweet acidity and buttery mouthfeel blend perfectly with juicy grapefruit notes and subtle herbals.

About Riziki Kacheranga of DR Congo

This coffee was grown by Riziki Kacheranga, a member of the Muungano Cooperative, shown here. Though Riziki is producing exceptional coffee, she lives in an area where just being female puts her at risk. Working with the Muungano co-op not only brings her great coffee to cups around the world, it empowers her and other women in her community (seen in this photo) through gender equality workshops.

Higher Grounds says, “Riziki shares how the Gender Action Learning System has changed her life: ‘The GALS is more important than food, money. I am now a respectable woman in my community. I am sure now to share my point of view at the same level as men.’"
