Description: This is a Red Bourbon coffee from Buf Cafe's Umurage washing station located in the Huye Dsitrict of the Kigmoa sector in southern Rwanda. Umurage is Buf Cafés third washing station, along with the Remera and Nyarusiza washing stations. Founded in 2003 by Epiphanie Mukashyaka, Buf Café was founded to grow the specialty Rwandan coffee sector and focus on quality. Epiphanie, who was born in 1959, was widowed during the 1994 genocide, which claimed over 800,000 lives in just 3 months, but chose not to leave her family’s small coffee farm. Instead, she set about rebuilding and developing her business and with it the local community.  It is estimated that Umurage has 412 registered coffee farmers. Buf Cafe provides lots of jobs for the community, and train farmers in good agricultural practices to improve quality with a focus on sustainability. This coffee is our most traditional third wave coffee, but with out any of the sourness. Starting off with bright notes of pomelo, nectarine, and yellow peach. These notes are quickly accompanied by notes of sweet limeade, sugarcane, and hibiscus lemonade which fall nicely into its light-medium body. This Rwanda has a creamy mouthfeel and finishes very smooth. As it cools, its complexity really shines, and it stays smooth throughout.
