Chris was really excited about this one. Most Rwandan coffees we’ve tasted have been notoriously sour, but this is one of the first that has been complex and balanced. It starts with some very short pleasant citrus notes and then lingers with sweetness. This is a brand new coffee for Kuma.
Kuma Roasters is based in Seattle, and we’ve been featuring them ever since 2012 when Rolando met them at a chefs conference. Mark, the owner, had parents who became missionaries in Kenya. That’s where he learned to love African coffee, and now he has a personal relationship with all the farmers he buys from. Read more about Kuma’s story at their website.
