Our Rwanda Coffee has a lovely fruity flavour profile:
- Aroma: Stone Fruit
- Acidity: Medium
- Body: Mellow
- Flavour: Buttery flavour with Candied orange and Plums.
This particular lot is very special as comes from a large number of small-holders, the majority of which look after as little as 200 coffee trees. The coffee beans are harvested and then delivered to a communal washing station where they are wet-processed, graded and sorted. The coffee company is known as Inzovu. This coffee is a Washed process Bourbon.
These fruity flavor profiles are a result of the country’s good growing conditions. There are around 400,000 smallholder producers in Rwanda (NAEB), with most farms sitting at 1,700–2,000 m.a.s.l., according to Sweet Maria’s.
The small holdings are usually less than an acre in size. Plus the country has only been growing coffee since the early 1900’s.
Often it is difficult to get coffee from Rwanda as it is a land locked country. This means that it has to pay much more to export their coffee.
We get this coffee through the IAC (inter-america Coffee) along with many other of our coffees. Find out more about them HERE.
