Blind Assessment: Richly bittersweet, harmoniously fruit-forward. Dark chocolate, dried black cherry, lavender, fresh-cut oak, tangerine zest in aroma and cup. Integrated, pleasingly bittersweet structure with gentle acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of dark chocolate, dried black cherry and cedar.
Notes: Fair trade and Rainforest Alliance-certified. Produced by a women-run sub-group of the COCAGI Cooperative in the Rusizi district of Western Province, Rwanda from trees of the BM 139, RAB C15 and Jackson 2/1257 varieties of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Located in southwestern Colorado, Durango Coffee lays claim to a rich coffee history that dates to 1986. Its motto is “Tough Town, Great Coffee.” Visit www.durangocoffee.com or call 800-748-2275 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A fruit-toned, complexly bittersweet natural Rwanda cup — a special microlot produced by women farmers of the COCAGI Cooperative.
