Rwanda has managed to overcome huge obstacles over the past decade - diseases, defects, instability threatening the future of coffee growing- and this coffee is a fantastic example of how much has been achieved. Not only is the production being restored, but they are back to growing some of the most delicious coffees in the world.
These coffee beans come from a Rwandan exporter who recently participated in the Cup of Excellence, taking 4 of the top 10 positions including numbers 1 and 2! This coffee was picked from those same very estates. They are farmed on a co-operate of around 30 members, who chose the name 'Urengerekawa'. This means "Let us protect coffee", a great nod to the challenges Rwandan coffee farmers have bested restoring quality.
This is my second purchase from Redber and once again they have not disappointed. As last time I purchased 4 different types of coffee(250g), all perfectly packaged and freshly roasted. My preference is for medium roasted African origin coffee beans with my favourite the Rwanda Inzovu -smooth and fruity with no bitter aftertaste. That said the Ethiopian and Tanzanian beans were top class too. Will definitely be ordering again.
Good price and flavor
Perfectly rounded medium coffee, very drinkable but with no discernable flavour notes.
Not very interesting for me. Like the top half of a cup of coffee - like listening to a band with no drums or bass. Others may find it light and refreshing. I know Kenya Peaberry has many fans but I dislike that too.
Compared to some other coffee vendors Redber are very fairly priced. This Rwandan coffee is excellent black and has notes of vanilla and citrus. Happy to recommend to anyone who likes quality coffees without bursting the bank.
