Blind Assessment: Spiced-toned, richly floral. Wisteria, sweet lime zest, date, white peppercorn, cocoa powder in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with punchy acidity; crisp, lively, satiny mouthfeel. The short finish suggests a cannabis-like pungency, while cocoa and wisteria notes carry into the long.
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 two decades owing to generous support from international aid agencies, the specialty coffee community and the industry of its growers. Boulder, Colorado-based Dragonfly Coffee was named 2019 Micro-Roaster of the Year by Roast magazine. Visit www.dragonflycoffeeroasters.com or call 303-579-2154 for more information.
The Bottom Line: Big, characteristic Rwanda sweet-tartness juxtaposed with savory depth, with a supporting intrigue of spice, flowers and complex fruit.
