Limited Edition Virunga Reserve Capsule Coffee

CRU Kafes small batch roasts give you the ability to discover some of the rarest organic coffees from around the globe, each with their own unique story to tell. These are the true treasures of the coffee world, designed to excite, inspire and amaze.

Dotted along the slopes of the Rwenzori mountains, the coffee plantations of Kivu are home to some of the most exciting Organic coffees in the world. Blessed by plentiful sunshine and rainfall, their rich and fertile soils are the result of nearby volcanic activity that has helped carve out Virunga National Park, a protected haven for flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world.

The coffees grown here are, quite simply, stunning - and CRU Kafes Limited Edition Virunga Reserve is no exception. Grown at altitudes of up to 1800 masl the coffees are fully washed to give a true reflection of the bean; allowing the more complex notes to really shine through. The precise roasting profile also helps accentuate these wonderful peculiarities - making this coffee both infinitely drinkable and truly unforgettable.

For the launch of this Limited Edition DRC Coffee, CRU Kafe are proud to be supporting the Virunga Foundation. Situated in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the Virunga National Park is a UNESCO world heritage site, and is the region’s most biologically diverse protected area. It is also, unhappily, in a region that has for the last 20 years been deeply impacted by the effects of war and armed conflict.

Alongside essential conservation work, the Park is also committed to supporting the local communities that surround the area; protecting both the wildlife in its tropical forest and the 4 million people that live within a days walk of its borders.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
