    I chose this coffee for our Christmas Coffee, so I know it pretty well. It was supplied by the fine people Falcon Specialty and hails from the Kamina washing station, one of Rwandas oldest, in the far west of the country near Lake Kivu in Nyamasheke district.

    Picked it for the Christmas vibes it offers; apple and cinnnamon, citrus, toffee, brown sugar, dark chocolate, clove and blood orange.

    It would be a great filter anytime of year but Ill be brewing this on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with mince pies probably!
