Drinking Guide:
We love the texture of the Kirindera Espresso. We preferred a slightly longer shot time when brewed as an espresso, try 18g coffee in for 34g espresso out and a shot time of 32-34 to make the most of this coffee's bold mouthfeel.

June's Roasters Choice Espresso: Kirindera, Democratic Republic of Congo

About Kirindera Espresso

For our June Roaster's Choice we are delighted to return to the the incredible women producing the Kirindera Women's Peace Coffee in Virunga National Park.

Kirindera Espresso has a special place in the heart’s of team Extract. This will be the third time we have listed a coffee from Virunga National Park. The Democratic Republic of Congo is a challenging place to live and work. Armed groups target young people then destabilise the region through horrific violence against the communities who live there.


Sourcing and supporting the coffee growing community in this region is beginning to improve the lives of people in the surrounding areas; providing sustainable income, resources and even providing electricity.

Kirindera is a washed coffee, meaning the cherries are selected and picked when ripe, depulped, fermented overnight in tanks and then flushed with water. The washed beans are then sun-dried on raised beds

Try a new single origin espresso every month

Each month the roastery team at Extract Coffee Roasters selects a brand new single origin espresso for that month's Roaster's Choice. 

The roastery team choose coffees from different countries, with different processes and different roast profiles so a Roaster's Choice subscription is a great way to experience a wide variety of coffees and discover just how different coffees can be!

You can buy our Roaster's Choice espresso by the bag, or can subscribe to have your coffee delivered to you automatically. 

Please note, that the coffee changes monthly, so if you select a weekly delivery you will receive the same coffee for the entire month until the next Roaster's Choice is selected. The benefit of a weekly subscription is that your coffee will always be freshly roasted when it arrives.
