Rwandan coffee often gets overshadowed by nearby Kenya and Ethiopia, but this is a lot that's sure to stand out! French Mission Bourbon plants growing in rich volcanic soil are a great start, and when you pair them with the Kanzu washing station's obsessive production standards you know you're in for something special. This coffee is remarkably unique, with a flavor profile unlike anything we're used to seeing in African coffees. A sweet cantaloupe note combines with light floral notes to create a sophisticated, almost delicate flavor. This coffee also has a decidedly creamy body, making it simultaneously heavy and light, smooth and airy. It's a truly unique combination, and we can't get enough of it!
