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.

PRICE breakdown (EUR/Gram)

€89,90 =

the price you pay for this coffee p/gram.

 

€3 + €5 + €1,20 

the price paid to farmers for their cherries as p/gram price of green (milled) coffee. The extra €5 is a special This Side Up premium that goes towards conserving the endangered gorillas, and we are legally obliged to pay a €1,20 p/gram insurance premium as many accidents happen while collecting the gorilla droppings.

 

€0,90 +

processing costs and coop management fee + dry-milling costs and exporter fee.

 

€78 +

This Side Up margin. Costs include sending samples, sales costs, travel- but mostly a hollow sense of exclusivity for rich people.
