|Roaster Location:||Topeka, Kansas|
|Review Date:||June 2007|
Blind Assessment: Sweet, gently bright, delicately balanced aroma: milk chocolate, honey, a hint of tomato and cedar. In the cup softly acidy, silky in mouthfeel, quiet in flavor with hints of chocolate that carry into a simple but roundly clean finish.
Notes: 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: Those who prefer to spend their summer afternoons in hammocks rather than on roller coasters.
