We're buzzing over Boon Boona's new microlot, the honey-sweet D.R. Congo Umoja. If you've ever enjoyed a stick of fresh honey at a farmers' market, or that last sip of lemon tea with the honey pooled at the bottom, you already know how this coffee tastes. The mouthfeel is divine, smooth and sweet, a little richer than you'll find with most washed coffees, and this just accentuates the honeyed flavor profile. Soft citrus notes, an aromatic combination of orange and lemon, bring light and balanced acidity. Finish lingers in your mouth like candy. Sipping this cup is like throwing open the window on a beautiful day and letting the sun shine in. It's also certified Fair Trade-Organic and Rainforest Alliance: the icing on the cake (or, if you will, the honey on the biscuit).
Congolese coffee is a real sleeper hit of the specialty arena — we're overjoyed to see the world waking up (literally and figuratively!) to how amazing it can be. Honey-smooth, intensely sweet, and full of sunny citrus flavors, Boon Boona's Congo Umoji was a great surprise on my cupping table, and it's bound to be a hit on your breakfast table. Trust me: no need for sugar in this cup, it brings its own. Reserve a bag today, for yourself or your sweetie, and enjoy this buzzworthy cup from one of specialty coffee's most hard-to-find, and delicious, single origins.
