Rwanda Kanzu

Rwanda Kanzu

Kanzu washing station is located in the Nyamasheke district of Rwanda’s Western province which is northwest of Lake Kivu. (we normally find our favorite Rwanda coffees close to Lake Kivu).

We are roasting this just like a nice medium roast Colombia, and we draw out the middle of the roast to make it creamy instead of acidic, and we end the roast just after the 2nd cracks begin. At this level of roast there's lots of chocolate, and hints of red fruit. There's a fairly large window of ending temperature in this area where you will get good results, but for your first try, take it to the verge of 2nd cracks. Makes for a really nice medium roast mug of coffee. You can roast this a little bit lighter, more like a Costa Rica, but it's pretty bright if you do that. You get nice complexity of green apple, mandarin orange, cherry; but it's kind of hard to drink because of the brightness.   

We kinda forgot about this coffee and it's now 1 year old, so I've discounted it down below cost to move it out into a good home before it gets any older.

US Arrival: December 2022
