Rwanda’s nickname is “land of a thousand hills”: those hills grow a mean coffee! This one is rich as velvet, with a big, round fruit profile and notes of savory, purple-colored jam. We have to ask: how “kanzu” possibly resist having another mug?
In 2007, Kanzu was one of the runners up in the Rwandan Golden Cup, and received an award at the Cup of Excellence in 2008. The washing station is located in the Western Province of Rwanda, on the Rwanda Congo Nile mountain chain.
After arriving at the washing station, coffee undergoes pulping, 18 hours of dry fermentation, and another 18 hours of soaking. This coffee has notes of blackcurrant, berry, and plum.

"Wasn’t a fan of this particular roast, a tad to bitter for my liking. "
"I did not enjoy this coffee. It was light and had a very odd taste. "
"Not my favorite coffee. For some reason this coffee reminds me of drinking tea. "
