We propose a caffeine escapade to discover 4 coffee producing countries: Peru, Guatemala, Congo and Ethiopia.
To begin our taste journey, we take you to South America, to Peru, the second largest producer of organic coffee in the world. The coffee is grown at an altitude of over 1300m and the cherries are harvested from March to September. The altitude and the local climate offer a pleasant length in the mouth, as well as a very particular flavour, to which are added notes of citrus fruit, hazelnut and chocolate.
We continue our journey towards Guatemala in Latin America.
Guatemala is a fertile land suitable for the cultivation of coffee trees with a fruity aroma and low caffeine content. This coffee comes from the volcanic highlands of the west of the country and grows at an altitude of over 1600m. Both powerful and velvety, it has acidity, a long finish and notes of chocolate and hazelnut!
It is also known as a “strictly hard bean”, which attests to the quality of this coffee grown at high altitude.
Let’s cross the Atlantic to the African continent! We take you to the Congo, and more precisely to the valleys surrounding Lake Kivu, which separates the Congo from Rwanda. Most of the coffee plantations are concentrated around the lake.
Congo coffee is grown in rich nature and on volcanic soil that offers a balance between acidity and bitterness. It is an intense, fruity and floral cup that will take you on a journey to the Congolese countryside!
This coffee was launched to mark the 20th anniversary of our Fairtrade/Max Havelaar certified organic and fair trade coffees (2020). It is packaged in a metal box that can be recycled over and over again!
To finish our caffeine escapade, we return to the country of origin of coffee, Ethiopia. Also known as the “cradle of coffee”, it is here that coffee is said to have begun to be consumed for its medicinal and health benefits.
Ethiopia is reputed to produce some of the best coffee in the world! It is also the only country where coffee grows wild.
Several regions are suitable for growing coffee, and we take you to the Sidamo province, located in the south of the country, to discover Ethiopia’s Moka Sidamo.
Cultivated at an altitude of between 1500m and 2000m, this coffee offers a particular taste, composed of intense and complex aromas. It reveals a sweetness in the mouth with floral and fruity notes whose aromas will remind you of the scent of Jasmine flowers!
