Other info Varietal: Arabica


From the third Cup of Excellence in Africa, we are pleased to offer this tasty coffee.

Normally we can go into lots of detail at this point as Cup of Excellence provides lots of background information. But this time it's a bit sketchy. This is from the Kayumbu Central Washing Station, which is based in the Southern Province of Rwanda and is near to the town of Kamonyi.

It is a small lot put together by the following people:

Nkurikiyinka Joel
Sindikubwabo Filemon
Mukambungo Faustine
Ndamari Emmanuel
Bicamupaka Barthazar
Munyeshuri Mathias
Twagirayezu Martin
Nambajimana Thadee
Gashagaza Ladislas
Byabagabo Anaclet

In the cup expect super bright, if you have ever had that concentrate Jif Lemon, then this is it. But it turns into an amazing sweetness so the tart and the sweet come together in a lemon drizzle cake.
