We received a 93 point score for this coffee in August of 2016 from Coffee Review!
Deeply sweet, with spice undertones. Vanilla, cocoa powder, rosemary flower, gardenia, ripe pear in aroma and cup. Juicy, rich acidity; delicate, silky mouthfeel. The crisp, gently drying finish is cocoa-toned and redolent of vanilla.
Produced entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica by the Gisuma Cooperative, situated close to Lake Kivu and the Rusizi River. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Rwanda’s impressive potential as fine coffee producer has come to fruition over the past decade owing to the industry of its growers, generous support from international aid agencies and the commitment of North American specialty coffee roasters. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.

The Bottom Line: A crisp, sweet Rwanda cup with appealing spicy-floral intrigue.
