Tasting Notes

Rwandan coffees are always a customer favorite.  This Rwandan has won a cup of excellence as this co-op seems to win every single year.  

I seem to be describing coffee similarly these days and I'm not sure why.  This is a unique coffee that has a nice smooth red grape flavor.  Not like a red wine, but not grape juice either.  Like an actual grape.  It's sweeter than those other two and is super juicy.  All of that said, it isn't a simple coffee.  It has complex notes that override the sweetness.

About The Farm / Origin

Located in Mushubati Sector, Rutsiro District, located in the Western Province and lies on the Congo Nile Crest. Rutsiro features many tourist attractions on the shores of Lake Kivu. KOPAKAMA CWS process coffee from trees grown on steep hills at high altitude by cooperative members and neighbors. With KOPAKAMA cooperatives, our members have benefited from getting jobs at the CWS in addition to supply cherries. The CWS is operating from 2005 and is owned by a cooperative known as KOPAKAMA which is supported by MISOZI which is an umbrella for many cooperatives that grow and process coffee to assist them for promotion and export of their coffees.
