Blind Assessment:

Extraordinarily lush, nectar-like fruit – cherry, black currant, nectarine – balanced by a crisp, roasted cocoa nib and roasted malt notes. Balanced, lively acidity; full, plush mouthfeel. Flavor simplifies but remains resonantly present in a long, rich finish.

Notes:

This exceptional coffee was selected as the #2 coffee in the Coffee Review Top 30 Coffees of 2013. Rwanda’s potential as fine coffee producer has only come to fruition over the past several years owing to generous support from international aid agencies, the specialty coffee community and the industry of its growers. Produced entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety. BeanFruit is a quality-oriented small-batch roaster based in Jackson, Mississippi, whose motto comes from Galatians 5:22-23: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Visit www.beanfruit.com or call 601-624-2605 for more information.
