Kanzu Lot #2
Our second lot from the Kanzu washing station!
hibiscus, currant, honeycrisp
...in this coffee.
This is our seventh year offering lots from the Kanzu washing station. The growers that bring their harvest to this station grow their coffee on small plots of land on the surrounding hillsides. With elevations rising above 1900m, and ever improving infrastructure, the lots that come out of Kanzu continue to amaze us with quality and almost no presence of the potato defect (a defect prevalent in this region that can make your coffee taste like a tot – not cool).
If you were bummed to see Kanzu lot #1 go, you will be happy to know that Kanzu lot #2 is also really delicious! The aromatics are deeply sweet with hints of floral – like hibiscus. In the cup, currant and a honeycrisp acidity are wrapped up in a dark honey sweetness. Really tasty and likely the last offering from Rwanda until next harvest, so grab some soon!
Espresso Out: 34-36g
Brew Time: 24-26s

We buy, roast, and sell coffee. On a surface level, this sounds simple enough. But buying coffee in a way we are proud of and in a way that those who buy our coffee are proud of is often complex, challenging, and hard work. We find ourselves on a continuum of buying and selling that progresses towards more sustainable, meaningful and equitable relationships. The chart below provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey.
