Rwanda Gatare Cup of Excellence Lot 6
|Roaster Location:||Brooklyn, New York|
|Coffee Origin:||Nyamasheke District, Rwanda.|
|Est. Price:||$28.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||March 2012|
Blind Assessment: Intense, zesty but sweet. Grapefruit, peach, rose-like flowers, baker’s chocolate in aroma and cup. Richly crisp acidity; silky mouthfeel. The floral note in particular carries into a long, dry, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: The Cup of Excellence is the most esteemed competition for green coffees from a given country of origin. This coffee was the sixth-place prize winner from the 2012 Rwanda competition chosen by a select group of international cuppers. Produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. An integral part of New York’s coffee renaissance, Brooklyn-based Café Grumpy opened its first café in 2005 and has since expanded to four locations, including its own roasting facility.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy dry, floral-toned white wines and the pungent dry-berry elegance of fine Kenya coffees.
