Description: This specially prepared, natural process coffee, comes from the Dukunde Kawa Musasa Co-operative in the Gakenke region of Northern Rwanda. The co-op is one of Rwanda's largest with over 2,100 members, whose farms range between 1,700 and 2,000 MASL. 'Dukunde kawa' means "Let's Love Coffee" in the Kinyarwanda language, in reference to the power of coffee to improve the lives of farmers in rural communities. We certainly love this coffer here at Local Roasters. Wonderfully complex and equally delicious, this cup starts very bright with notes of strawberry jam, blueberry syrup, and a touch of banana sweetness up front. Soon it dives into notes of orange, grape hard candy, and just barely a hint of milk chocolate. Its acidity is medium and it has a creamy, light-medium body that is almost tea-like. On the very back end, there are floral notes of rose hips and hops. This cup is incredibly smooth and creamy, with lingering floral notes. We highly recommend giving this coffee a try while it's around!
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.
