This shipment has made its way to you from Karongi, Rwanda, where it was grown among the hills of the Gitesi sector. These delicate Bourbon plants were tended by many small-holders in the region before being brought together at a private washing station for processing. And it's not your run-of-the-mill washing station (pun very much intended). Gitesi has been producing some of the best coffee out of Rwanda in recent years, with a Cup of Excellence win under their belt and tons of seriously good coffee to show for it. This particular batch packs the sweetest aroma in recent memory, carrying over into an opulent flavor profile: rich vanilla and rum notes with a dried fruit touch. Small lots of extremely tasty coffee like this one are always popping up, and it's our pleasure to find & share them with you!

Brazil and coffee are synonymous for many people, and beans this delicious are part of the reason why. Grown on farmland formerly owned by one of the founders of the Brazil Specialty Coffee Association, quality coffee has always been a fixture here and that didn't change when Homero purchased the farm from his uncle. (Coffee from Fazenda Guariroba won the 2016 Brazil Cup of Excellence, and the farm shows no sign of slowing down). Investing in post-production processes and reclaiming water sources, we're sure to see even more great coffees like this one coming from Fazenda Guariroba in years to come. This lot is a rich, memorable coffee that makes the most of natural processing, drawing out some remarkably strong flavor notes Full strawberry tones and floral aromatics stand out, with an overall sweetness that makes for an enjoyable and easy-to-drink cup.
