We proudly present the most exclusive coffee in the world: 100% WILD ORGANIC INDEPENDENTLY CERTIFIED Kopi Gorilla from the Virunga Mountains in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This naturally processed rarity is characterised by a smooth kimchi acidity, a spicy durian fruit aroma and lingering nutty aftertaste. The gorillas are thrown high-grown Bourbon coffee cherries from a distance in their natural habitat and hand-foraged exclusively by bird-friendly caretakers. Around fifty kilograms produced annually.
