Coffee Review - Rwanda Bufcafe by Johnson Brothers Coffee
Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: May 2012
Origin: Rwanda Price: $12.99/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Intense, bright, floral. Flowers, pear, apricot, hints of honey and cocoa in aroma and cup. Rich, forceful but balanced acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Fruit notes in particular carry into a long, resonant finish.

Notes: Rwanda's impressive potential as fine coffee producer has come to fruition over the last several years owing to the industry of its growers, generous support from international aid agencies and the commitment of North American specialty coffee roasters. Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit or call 608-256-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a bright, pure but complex morning cup.
