Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet with savory undertones. Mulberry, rhododendron, agave syrup, oak, a hint of thyme in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with round, gentle acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The quiet finish is carried by notes of mulberry, rhododendron and thyme.

Notes:

From the Tumba washing station or wet mill operated by Venustre Mugraneza. Produced from trees of the Jackson variety of arabica, a local strain of the admired Bourbon variety. Wet-processed or “washed,” meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting. Big Creek Coffee Roasters is a small, quality-oriented batch roaster located in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley. Visit www.bigcreekcoffeeroasters.com or call 406-375-7508 for more information.

The Bottom Line: A rich, pleasing Rwanda coffee with berry notes, vanilla-like florals, and an appealing hint of sweet herbs.
