Blind Assessment: Soft, rich, deep. Complex floral-related notes (honeysuckle, rose, vanilla, peach) lead, particularly in the cup, with complicating hints of earthy, strawberry-like fruit and walnut. Pronounced but gentle acidity; plush, silky mouthfeel. Floral notes profoundly saturate a sweet-toned finish.
Notes: Produced by the Hinga Kawa Women’s Association of the Abakundakawa Cooperative from trees of the heirloom Red Bourbon variety of Arabica. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: This sweet, deep, floral-toned cup, particularly characteristic of the best Rwandas, should please those who enjoy a pure but exotically complex coffee.
