Rwanda Cafe Femenino

Blind Assessment: Juicy, sweetly tart, balanced. Ripe grapefruit, flowers, apricot, crisply cocoaish chocolate in aroma and, with particular intensity and complexity, in the cup. Bright, citrusy acidity; round, silky mouthfeel. Flavor-saturated, cocoa-toned finish.
Notes: Fair Trade certified, meaning this coffee was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Café Femenino is an organization that supports women farmers and their families in coffee growing communities. 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. Flamenco Organic Coffee, founded in 2005 in Minneapolis, offers one of the country’s largest arrays of Fair-Trade and organic-certified coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: An opportunity to enjoy a fine Central Africa coffee with classic Bourbon-influenced crisp juiciness while supporting some of the many women who struggle to raise their families on very modest returns from small coffee farms.
