Rwanda may yet be our saving grace when it comes to sourcing coffees from Africa. As getting quality coffee from Kenya becomes harder, and as the situation in Ethiopia remains uncertain, we're grateful for some excellent coffee from the Rulindo District in Rwanda's Northern Province. Kinini Village is a 48-member producer group who, with the help and support of the great folks at Crop to Cup, has transformed the landscape to produce some exquisite coffee. Felix, the washing station's manager, keeps the processing equipment extremely well maintained. The coffee is silky and sweet, with crisp melon acidity and flavors paired with Rwanda's classic dried fruit qualities and honeyed sweetness.
