Kivu Lake!

My first time ordering this, and like everything here at 1KH, it is excellent. A more rich and robust bean. Complex and deep notes are perfect for the mornings when I need a bit more oomph.

Bold, with a complex flavor profile

I absolutely love this dark roast. I often feel that dark roasts can be TOO bold or overbearing, causing the flavor profile to be muted. However, with Kira Ikawa, you are still able to take note of the variety of flavor notes hidden within the roast. Great dark roast!

A smooth cup

We love this blend. It’s smooth and rich but not overly dark. No bitterness whatsoever. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser.

Great as a pour-over

The Kivu lake single origin is the 5th single origin African bean I have tried this year (from different roasters). This is the best of the lot and one I will be ordering again and again!
