Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, juicy, bright. Red grape, sandalwood, dark chocolate, almond butter, pink grapefruit zest in aroma and small cup. Sweet-tart structure with elegantly high-toned acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Crisply fruit-toned finish.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 20 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2022. Produced at the Cyesha Coffee Plantation entirely of the Bourbon variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Magnolia Coffee is a Charlotte-based specialty roaster whose mission is to use sustainably sourced coffees to make a difference in the lives of coffee workers and to foster a socially conscious community with cause-supporting coffees.

The Bottom Line: This natural-processed Rwanda has sweet-tart top notes and a rich dark chocolate base, complicated by bittersweet citrus zest.
