Description: This Fair Trade Certified coffee from Rwanda truly produces an incredibly smooth and well balanced cup that we absolutely love here at the shop. On the front end you pick up on notes of sweet plum and honey, accompanied by a floral note of lavender and wildflower. The medium body has depth, but isn't overwhelming, and the mouthfeel is silky and coating. You soon pick up on notes of golden raisin and a nice nutty note of roasted pecan that melt into its smooth and lingering floral finish. 

Espresso Notes:

Recipe: 20g of coffee into 32g of espresso output. Approx. 28-30 second extraction.
(Mahlkonig K30 grinder and Faema E-Nova A1 Espresso machine)

A lovely bouquet of floral and stone fruit aromatics directly lead into a bright and juicy espresso. A light nuttiness rounds out a good syrupy body and rich crema. Apricot, lavender and pistachio create a nice springtime palette to take you back to nice weather and endless daydreams. 

Recommended: try this as an iced americano or espresso tonic.

Shelf Life: An unopened bag will remain tasty for five months due to our processes and packaging. We remove most of the oxygen from each bag during our packaging process and replace it with food-grade nitrogen to lovingly cradle these precious beans for a long time. We use the highest quality bags with one-way valves to retain the low-oxygen environment we create and allow our coffee to off-gas naturally.
