Blind Assessment: Delicately sweet, crisply floral. Narcissus, pear, macadamia nut, cocoa nib, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with pert acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. A nougat note surfaces in the floral-toned finish.
Notes: Produced from trees of local strains of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Epiphanie Mukashyaka established the now-famous Bufcafe washing station or wet mill following the Rwandan genocide. Processed by a Rwandan version of the wet or “washed” method, in which skin and fruit flesh are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried. Jackrabbit Java selects the finest coffees from around the world and roasts them in Thermopolis, Wyoming’s mountain air. All Jackrabbit Java coffees are specialty-grade and roasted to order.

The Bottom Line: Chocolate and flowers: crisp cocoa nib and resonant narcissus-like florals animate this graceful Rwanda cup.
