Variety: Red Bourbon
Origin: Nyaruguru, Rwanda
Producers: Nyampinga Cooperative
The Nyampinga Cooperative is based in Southern Rwanda, where a group of about 200 women work together to improve their livelihoods by increasing the quality of their coffee crops. Through special trainings and equipment and increased access to coffee markets, the cooperative has seen steady increases in its output and overall quality since its founding in 2013. The members grow Red Bourbon coffee on communal plots of land or family farms, and work together to hand sort their coffee during processing at the Nyampinga coffee washing station. The result is a delicious coffee that we couldn't be more excited about.
Nyampinga is a clean coffee with a very distinctive flavor profile. The main note that you'll taste is a pronounced lemon flavor, which lends the cup a fair amount of brightness and acidity from the outset. This acidity pairs nicely with a custardy note that adds some body and sweetness to the mix without counteracting the standout citrus flavor. It's a delicate balance between acidic and sweet that this cup manages, and we love how it leaves a dry, crisp finish. This is a great cup of coffee to start your day with, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Don't forget to leave us a note on the website with your reactions to this stellar brew!
