Blind Assessment:

Brisk, delicate, complex. Apricot, mandarin orange, dark chocolate, night flowers in aroma and cup. Gently crisp acidity; silky mouthfeel. Richly dry, flavor-saturated finish.


Rwanda’s impressive potential as fine coffee producer has come to fruition over the last several years owing to the industry of its growers, generous support from international aid agencies and the commitment of North American specialty coffee roasters. JBC Coffee Roasters (formerly Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters) is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit www.jbccoffeeroasters.com or call 608-256-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Gentle acidity and briskly complex aromatics should please those who enjoy fine black teas and lighter bodied, spicy red table wines.
