Our Notes
Aromas of red grape and tobacco pave the way for crisp orange, cranberry and grapefruit acidity, with flavors of cloves and brown sugar carrying into a clean, succinct finish.

Kanzu is a washing station in the southwest of Rwanda near Lake Kivu, one of the most amazing growing regions in Rwanda. This is one exampe where the beauty of the area seems to correlate to the beauty of the coffee itself. Kanzu is tucked away in a valley surrounded by mountain peaks of the Nyamasheke region. The washing station changed ownership two years ago and we have seen consistent improvement in the way they are working here. Kanzu is such a sweet cup of coffee, and 'complete' in terms of aromatics, sweetness, acidity, and mouthfeel. -Coffee Shrub

Delicate aromas of tangerine and allspice lead into a creamy cup, with navel orange acidity complementing flavors of milk chocolate and a finish like marzipan and cloves.

This selection is a product of a special program in Colombia called "Million Pesos", which aims to find the country’s best coffees by offering a price of 1 million pesos per carga (125 kilograms) for coffees scoring above 90 points. As Cafe Imports explains it, Coffee farmers participating in this program are ecstatic when they succeed as the price on the street for traditional sales is about half that. Last November we had a meeting celebrating the top producers and handing out big checks for their hard work. There was a lot of discussion about farming methods and practices that contribute to coffees scoring above 90 points, but mainly general excitement about the possibility of having this type of success from quality. These people are proud farmers anyway and cash for their quality just helps to dignify that.
