Bean name Rwanda Crop of Gold COCAF Amizero 2007-2008
Country Rwanda
Region Gatsibo
Other info Red Bourbon Cup of Gold


The Rwanda cup of gold is the pre cursor competition to the cup of excellence program.Its a trial run for a country to check out the logistics and how to conduct a coffee competition. So at long last next year the Cup of Excellence will be held outside of Central/South America and break into Africa.

Some points to make, its NOT the cup of excellence and its not the same at all. But what its does do is find some fine coffee micro (and we mean micro) lots and we are very excited to have these two lots. The other point is these are VERY rare coffees and a must try.

COCAF Amizero is again a small lot. This red bourbon is from the village of Rushenyi in the District of Gatsibo. the Village produces just 23 bags in an area of 350 Hectares. Grown at an altitude of 1500m

In the cup expect Caramel, Citrus and Lime Zest, with dark Chocolate, coco and almonds.
