Blind Assessment: Deep, sweet, pungent. Suggestions of butterscotch, fresh-turned earth, dried plums, dark chocolate and fir in aroma and cup. Round, rich acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Hints of flavor persist in a long, round, resonant finish.
Notes: Rwanda's 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 passionate commitment of North American specialty coffee roasters. This coffee was produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica by the cooperative known as COOPAC (Cooperative pour la Promotion des Activities Café.) Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Elegantly pungent and earthy, a good choice for those who enjoy fine Sumatras.
