Rwanda Cup of Excellence

Vunga

I’m very excited to share with you this lovely coffee from the Rwandan Cup of Excellence, this lot of coffee placed 13th with a average score of 86.69 from the international jury. I was lucky enough to be on this jury this year and this was one of my favorite coffees- it had tough competition!

Although this coffee cups very differently here than in Rwanda it is still super tasty, we found it to be very sweet like a super sweet peach syrup, with prunes and a lovely lime acidity that makes it super balanced you’ll also find a hint of vanilla and jasmine  in the finish.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
