Rwanda - Horizon 444
BRING ME THE HORIZON 🤘
Rwandan Coffee has held a special place in my heart throughout my coffee journey. The coffees I've had have always been juicy, but held a different richness and body than other African coffee origins. That, along with the tragic and incredible story the this country and their rebirth has made me appreciate the coffees I can purchase from here even more.
This coffee is an exciting example of Rwandan coffee. A Natural processed coffee that carries a deep sweetness and bright clarity that makes this coffee RAD as a filter coffee or through espresso! As an espresso I almost feel like I get a 'warm red juice' vibe, which is maybe just a Northern Irish thing...But it's freakin legit! :)
*boxes will be sent with 'hand labelled' stickers on this coffee 🖐
In the brew I'm getting:
Cherry pie, kiwi, milk chocolate and my taste markers are juicy and bold!
**Rwanda is blessed with ideal coffee growing conditions that include high altitude, regular rainfall, volcanic soils with good organic structure and an abundance of Bourbon. The vast majority of Rwandan coffee is produced by smallholders of which there are thought to be around half a million with parcels of land often not much larger than just one hectare per family. Coffee is grown in most parts of the country, with particularly large concentrations along Lake Kivu and in the southern province. Rwandan smallholders organise themselves into cooperatives and share the services of centralised wet-mills –or washing stations as they are known locally. Flowering takes place between September and October and the harvest runs from March to July with shipments starting in late May early June.
All Process coffees are sold as 200g
