Description

Rwanda might be small but the coffee that comes from here is absolutely divine. As Rwanda has no coastline it can be expensive to export the coffee. There are some 400,000 small-scale growers and all coffee is Arabica.

 

The coffee, which is grown at 1,400 - 1,900 meters, is from the varieties Bourbon and Typica. Coffee beans are roasted to a light to medium level.

 

This is a fruity and well balanced sweet coffee with beautiful hints of cranberries.
