From the far south-west of Rwanda - a region called Nyakabuye - this coffee is from a small cooperative of only 30 farmers, each with anywhere between a few hundred and a few thousand trees.
This offered lot comes from a Rwandan exporter whom recently participated in the "Cup of Excellence" taking 4 of the top 10 positions including numbers 1 and 2! This coffee was picked from those very same estates.
Sweet and clean, with a bright acidity and some floral notes. I just adore Rwandan coffee anytime of the year, but this new crop is arguably from one of the best coffee estates worldwide. Grown at 1600-1700m above sea level, it's a great Arabicacoffee which is processed at the cooperative's own wet-mill, which they built in 2008 to ensure that they could oversee every stage of growing and processing the beans.
****PLEASE BE AWARE THESE ARE RAW, UNROASTED COFFEE BEANS, NOT SUITABLE FOR CONSUMPTION BEFORE BEING ROASTED****
This African coffee likes a slower roast, take it into a solid second crack to just round the taste off and deliver a deep brown colour.
