Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, deeply rich. Baking chocolate, hazelnut nougat, narcissus, red grape, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Sweet, balanced structure with brisk acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of baking chocolate and hazelnut supported by red grape and fresh-cut oak.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers surrounding the Kigeme Washing Station in Rwanda, where the coffee is processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Small Eyes Café is a small, family-owned coffee shop in Yilan, Taiwan, specializing in artisanally roasted specialty coffee and homemade desserts.

The Bottom Line: A crisply chocolaty, sweetly nut-toned Rwanda with pleasing floral and fruit nuance.
