This is a coffee we had last season and was very very popular, and I'm pleased to see it here again.

From the trip in August 2008 to Rwanda its become a very special place for me, and I was lucky enough to ave a tour of one of the wet mills when there like they use in Mugombwa

Rwanda was a very successful player in the coffee world in the late eighty's early ninety's, but the genocide in 1994 where nearly one million people died devastated the infrastructure and the economy

In the cup this sweet red bourbon has a floral and coffee blossom front that's very light and delicate that turns into a smooth rich big bodied chocolate fruit and nut bar. The aftertaste reminds me of a walnut, it sounds strange but its really good.
