Blind Assessment: Sweet, slightly savory, unique. Black currant, sugary sweet potato, dark chocolate, pistachio, rhododendron-like flowers in aroma and cup. Deep, pungent acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Balanced, quietly flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Produced entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety and processed at the award-winning Kanzu washing station or wet mill. Rwanda’s potential as fine coffee producer has only come to fruition over the past decade owing to generous support from international aid agencies, the specialty coffee community and the industry of its growers. Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale specialty roaster active in Sacramento, California since 2005. Committed to sourcing, roasting and brewing the finest coffees, Temple features coffee from distinguished single estates and cooperatives around the world.

Who Should Drink It: A particularly deeply expressed example of the sweet-savory, resonantly complex Rwanda cup.
