Rwandan Dukunde Kawa

This coffee won the Rwandan Cup of Excellence in 2008, 2010, 2011, and 2012 . An impressive record! The coffee comes from the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative. Founded in 2000 with 300 farmers, the Cooperative now has 2,016 members.

This lot is 100% red bourbon cultivar, which is known for its sweetness and is well-suited for this region and elevation. The careful processing has produced a coffee with a complex sweetness and body. It has notes of milk chocolate, dense dried fruit, raisin, cranberry, lemons and buttery biscuits. We noticed a considerable difference in flavor from brewing method to brewing method. Clever brewer was our favorite with notes of fruit, chocolate and cranberry.
