Rwanda Kilimbi Hydro Honey
This coffee is the result of an experimental processing technique we applied in Rwanda for the first time in 2017. The goal was to combine the sweet, fruit forward flavour from a natural processed coffee and fuse that with a clean, crisp acidity that's generally derived from a washed coffee.
Tasting Notes: Raspberry - Mango - Black Tea
Burundi Gakenke Oro Honey
This tasty coffee has yeast added to the fermentation process. The strain of yeast is called Oro yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), Oro is a specific yeast developed for coffee production. The yeast is used to control spoilage of the coffee cherries and this increases the cup quality! This fermentation process gives us complex acidity which we taste as passion fruit and nectarine. There is also a comfortable cocoa nib/chocolate quality that rounds out the cup.
Tasting Notes: Passion Fruit - Nectarine - Cocoa Nib
Hti Ta Maung Natural Red Catuai
Loaded with rich, low tones, this coffee is cozy and comfortable. This coffee shows dark berry flavours, with a sticky, sweet quality that reminds us of raisins. You'll find that sticky and sweet quality also leans into a caramelized sugary quality such as molasses.
Tasting Notes: Dark Berries - Molasses - Raisin
Don’t forget that you can order filters and brewing equipment with your coffee order!
