Blind Assessment: Bright, balanced, citrusy. Tangerine, almond butter, apple blossom, baking chocolate, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with high-toned acidity; delicate, satiny mouthfeel. The nut- and citrus-toned finish is supported by crisp baking chocolate.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers near the Nyakibanda Washing Station entirely of the Red Bourbon variety of Arabica, and processed by a traditional variation on the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). JBC Coffee Roasters’ vision is simple: “let the coffee lead the way” through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with substantial premiums.

The Bottom Line: An engaging, confident Rwanda cup: crisply chocolaty, delicately floral, citrus-driven.
