Blind Assessment: Intense, bright, floral. Flowers, pear, apricot, hints of honey and cocoa in aroma and cup. Rich, forceful but balanced acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Fruit notes in particular carry into a long, resonant finish.
Notes: Rwanda's impressive potential as fine coffee producer has come to fruition over the last several years owing to the industry of its growers, generous support from international aid agencies and the commitment of North American specialty coffee roasters. JBC Coffee Roasters (formerly Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters) is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit www.jbccoffeeroasters.com or call 608-256-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : Those who enjoy a bright, pure but complex morning cup.
