The flamingo, called Korongo in Swahili, stands out for its unique, bright pink coloring. It may not be pink, but like the flamingo, our Korongo blend immediately attracts attention with its pronounced sweetness, full body and prominent acidity. Vertical-integration and whole-harvest sourcing enable us to source Korongo’s 84+ SCA cup in significant volumes at an accessible price that supports roaster success and producer resilience.
