We are once again excited to offer a beautiful bourbon cultivar from the Kanzu washing station in Rwanda!
Kanzu washing station sits at 1,950 meters in Nyamasheke, located in Southwestern Rwanda. The coffee grows in rich volcanic soil on rolling, steep hills that tower over the station reaching up to 2,200 meters. Producers with small lots from the hillsides above, bring their ripe fruit to the station below. The soil, high elevations, and cool climate are perfect for producing ripe, dense fruit. The washing station has invested resources into an improved infrastructure, training farmers on the best agronomic practices, and improving quality which shines through in the cup season after season.
This year, Kanzu has lovely candied pear and floral aromatics, with currant, sweet hibiscus and a persistent honeyed sweetness in the cup.
