Blind Assessment: Pure, brightly balanced, distinctive cup. Perfumy, lavender-like flowers, milk chocolate, nut, and hints of plum-like fruit in aroma and cup. Juicy acidity; smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet-toned, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: A prize winner in the 2010 Rwanda Cup of Excellence (www.cupofexcellence.org) competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed seventeenth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 84.98 from an international jury. Owing to generous support from international aid agencies, the specialty coffee community and the industry of its growers, Rwanda's tremendous potential as fine coffee producer finally has come to fruition. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit
Who Should Drink It: A striking variation on the floral-toned East Africa cup. If you enjoy Yirgacheffe, try this Rwanda for a fine variant on the style.
