About the Coffee Origin

The Kivu region offers an exceptional situation for coffee growing. The complexity of the soil, the high altitude, the rainfall conditions and the reflection of the sun's rays on the lake make the coffees from this region unique.

This coffee is produced in the region of North Kivu, in the Virunga National Park on Lake Kivu, between 1500 and 2000 meters above sea level. For the first year, Bonobo coffee is certified organic. Cultivated without pesticides or chemical fertilizers, cherries take time to grow in the shade of jungles. They are then manually harvested by small producers before being processed, depulped and sorted.

Thanks to the exceptional weather conditions it enjoys, this coffee is considered a "great cru" for amateurs and discoverers of great terroirs.
After harvest, the cherries are fully washed processed and then pulped with traditional machines. The coffee is then routed in the farm "Kakondo", at 35 km in the North East of Bukavu where it is sorted.
