    A wonderful light roast espresso. A nutty/almond character at the front of the palate. Very balanced acidity with a hint of tropical org. I definitely get plum but not in the way its normally used as a descriptor. This plum is how they taste just before they turn too ripe, some sugar but also that unique acidity. Very nice.

    Cupping Method:Espresso, extraction at 95 C on my A53 Spaziale worked well

    Exceptional, rich flavor, matched with a bright, sweet acidity makes this a stand out roast! The flavor hints of sweet, roasted pecan (almost praline) compelling the drinker to explore this richly layered masterpiece.

    Cupping Method:espresso, no sweetener

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Rwanda
Rwandan coffee is known for its bright, fruity, and tea-like characteristics, attributable to its high elevations, fertile volcanic soil, and temperate climate. The Bourbon variety, commonly grown in Rwanda, lends itself to a delicate and nuanced flavor profile, often exhibiting notes of red fruit, citrus, and floral undertones. As the country has invested in improving coffee production and processing techniques, Rwandan coffee has emerged as a top contender in the specialty coffee market, earning recognition for its vibrant and complex flavors.
Rwandan coffee is renowned for its unique and vibrant flavor profile. It is characterized by a bright acidity and complex fruit tones, often featuring notes of berry, citrus, and sometimes hints of chocolate. Grown in the rich volcanic soil found throughout the hilly regions of the country, such as along the shores of Lake Kivu, Rwandan coffee benefits from an ideal combination of high altitude, regular rainfall, and ample sunshine. This environment facilitates the cultivation of predominantly Bourbon varieties of Arabica beans, typically handpicked with great care by small-scale farmers. The meticulous processing methods, including washing and sun-drying, contribute to the coffee's clean taste and high quality, making Rwandan coffee increasingly highly prized internationally.
Espresso
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
