The Democratic Republic of the Congo Muungano was carefully roasted for you by Higher Grounds Coffee. This Fair Trade certified coffee was produced by the Muungano Cooperative in the Kiniziere, Lake Kivu region of Democratic Republic of the Congo between 1,450 - 2,000 meters above sea level. The cup has notes of sweet almond and meyer lemon acidity with a buttery, full bodied mouthfeel.
It took some trial and error to get honed in, it's easy to over-extract. I had good results on a V60 using a shorter brew time of about 2:30 with water at 200F

Terrible. Tasted like dirt.
This one is between a 4.5 and 5 for me. If you like a light and brighter coffee, then this would be a 5. It sips a lot fuller than most medium-light roasts and touts a smooth citrus taste with a toasted almond finish. Would highly recommend.
Quite good. Perfect acidity that makes my mouth water. Not a ton of flavors beyond that.
Flavor really wasn't coming through for me.
A favorite! Order repeat. Tasting notes are spot on: sweet almond; nice lemon acid; full mouth feel; great character and balance.
Both hated it
I know I've rated this 5 stars already, but I want to reiterate how much I like this coffee. I've enjoyed every drop of it.
Fantastic prob my favorite so far
Very good as a Chemex. I enjoyed this one more than any other roast from Mistobox!
Weird flavor profile. Almost too lemony??
Not as dark a roast as I prefer, but with interesting notes of butter and nuts.
Quite flavorful and balanced.
Consistently good tasting brew via Chemex, satisfying
This coffee was a little disappointing. Its acidity was thin and windy which didn't compete well with the nuttiness that came across very strongly. It almost bordered on underdeveloped but the roast looked great which leads me to believe it was just a subpar coffee.
Amazing smell. Smells better than it tastes, but the taste is great and it definitely delivers a full bodied mouthfeel. Tastes and smells more like a light roast than a medium.
Very nutty with a hint of spice. I like the juiciness and acidity. A bit darker than my favorites, but better than most with the nutty/chocolate profile.
This coffee really grew on me. It has a full, lovely flavor. Nothing sticks out of the texture -- it's just delicious.
Taste is just not very good. The lemon flavor is apparent but it tastes burned and bitter. Probably not even finishing the bag.
Nice flavor, but a bit light. I use French Press; some reviews said pour over might be better for this one.
Interesting, but maybe a little too citrus for my tastes.
Excellent cup of coffee, well balanced flavor profile. A nutty/buttery taste with a slight citrus kick. Pour over recommended.
This coffee was pretty good. A bit lighter than the last one, but still enjoyed it.
