Rwanda - Gitwe
- Mango, cherry, maple syrup -
Rwanda is blessed with ideal coffee growing conditions that include high altitude, regular rainfall, volcanic soils with good organic structure and an abundance of Bourbon. The vast majority of Rwandan coffee is produced by smallholders of which there are thought to be around half a million with parcels of land often not much larger than just one hectare per family. Coffee is grown in most parts of the country, with particularly large concentrations along Lake Kivu and in the southern province. Rwandan smallholders organise themselves into cooperatives and share the services of centralised wet-mills –or washing stations as they are known locally. Flowering takes place between September and October and the harvest runs from March to July with shipments starting in late May early June.
Last year we were fortunate to have some incredible natural lots from Rwanda, most definitely catching the bug for this specific flavour profile. This microlot from Gitwe doesn't disappoint! expect high notes of mango, cherry and a maple syrup aftertaste.
