Rwanda Buf Coffee Mills
|Roaster Location:||Acton, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Ginkongoro and Butare Provinces, Rwanda.|
|Review Date:||February 2009|
Giddily and brightly sweet floral-toned profile: orange, tart cherry, hints of dry chocolate, pipe tobacco, honey. Balanced acidity, silky mouthfeel, superbly clean, floral-toned finish.
Rwanda's tremendous potential as fine coffee producer has only come to fruition over the past four to five years owing to generous support from international aid agencies and the specialty coffee community and the industry of its growers. Produced entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety. Terroir is a microroaster selling only elite single-origin coffees, no blends. It specializes in medium roast styles designed to foreground the character of the green coffee. Terroir is the creation of George Howell, one of the world's leading coffee visionaries.

Who Should Drink It
A fine variation on the East Africa profile: more balanced than many Yirgacheffes, less acidy than many Kenyas, a touch of chocolate, ultimately unique.
