Blind Assessment: Richly cocoa- and spice-toned, deeply sweet. Cocoa nib, mandarin, nougat, freesia-like flowers, clove in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with crisp, lively acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The cocoa-laden finish leads with mandarin and nougat notes in the short, clove in the long.
Notes: Produced by members of the women-led Abakundakawa Cooperative from trees of the Bourbon and Jackson varieties of Arabica and processed by the wet, or washed, method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Committed to sourcing, roasting and brewing the finest coffees, Temple features coffee from distinguished single estates and cooperatives around the world.

The Bottom Line: Cocoa nib and warm spice notes characterize this enveloping, richly sweet Rwanda cup produced by a women’s cooperative.
