We are once again excited to offer a beautiful bourbon cultivar from the Kanzu washing station located in the Nyamasheke district - southwest corner of Rwanda! Producers with small lots from the hillsides above, bring their ripe fruit to the station below. This particular lot has lovely candied pear and floral aromatics, with currant, hibiscus and a honeyed sweetness in the cup. We are also excited to find (as with last year's lot) very little to no potato defect! If you are wary of buying coffee from this region, although there are no guarantees, Kanzu is a safe bet and a wonderful example of what this region has to offer.
