A deep, roundly low-toned coffee with pleasingly deep, round, low-toned aroma with distinct lemony (perhaps orangy) chocolate notes. In the cup smooth, balanced acidity, silky mouthfeel, and tart cherry and continued lemon-toned chocolate notes. A note that could be called banana appears toward the long, flavor-saturated, very slightly astringent finish.
The coffee cooperatives of Rwanda, benefiting from superb growing conditions, traditional varieties of arabica and support from aid agencies and coffee idealists, are beginning to produce coffees that rank among the world's finest and most distinctive. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT's motto is "without the love, it's just coffee."

Who Should Drink It
A balanced, versatile cup, quietly acidy but sweetly smooth, and an excellent candidate for those interested in sampling an origin that is emerging as a distinctive addition to the great East African coffee repertoire.
