Delicate, crisply sweet. Jasmine, cedar, pink grapefruit zest, mango, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Round, gentle acidity; satiny mouthfeel. The sweetly savory finish is carried by cocoa-toned floral notes with hints of citrus zest.

The Bottom Line: A sweet, floral-toned Rwanda cup with ballast from tart citrus and savory aromatic wood notes.

Produced by the women’s coffee growing cooperative Nyampinga. The word Nyampinga has a nuanced translation that refers to the coming of age of a young woman who is proud, beautiful and respected in her community.

Since 2013 the women of Nyampinga have been working on improving the quality of their coffee through a training program funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, in collaboration with Sustainable Harvest. Great strides have been taken in a short time – from selling coffee cherries at low prices to establishment of their own wet mill and making connections directly with roasters.
