Guava and pink lemonade aromatics. Pomegranate and hibiscus in a fun, juicy cup.This vibrant washed lot comes to us from Kanzu, an exemplary wet mill in Rwanda’s Nyamasheke District Hyper-sweet Bourbon coffee cherry is grown and harvested by hundreds of small-holding farmers, who bring their fresh pick down from the green slopes of the surrounding mountains, to be carefully pulped, fermented for a full day, water-channel washed and sorted for quality, soaked overnight, then evenly dried on raised beds.
Located just southeast of the great Lake Kivu, Kanzu provides near-perfect terroir for coffee-growing at 1900+ masl, the beauty of the land practically reflected in the cup. This lot, collected from the tenth week’s pickings, shows the signature of peak, middle harvest, demonstrating a beautiful balance of dark sugar sweetness with fresh and dried fruits.
