Variety: French Mission Bourbon

Producers: Karambi Small-holders
Rwandan coffee is experiencing a boom as quality continues to improve across their growing regions. Most of the coffee grown in Nyamasheke is French Mission Bourbon, which produces vibrant fruit flavors and really crisp acidity. The farmers at the Kanzu washing station work together to process their crops, and share production resources to help one another improve quality and yield. This lot of Kanzu coffee is especially bright, with strong citrus acidity kicking in early. There are some cooler honeydew notes present that help mitigate the citrus, and a nice crisp apple finish that helps the cup remain composed. The flavors in this coffee are really well defined, which makes it a great candidate for experimenting with different brew methods. We'd love to hear what you discover!
