Rwanda coffee for Espresso
Known as the land of a thousand hills Rwanda has the perfect environment to grow speciality Arabica coffee. Since the genocide of the 90’s, coffee has played a huge role in getting the country back to where it once was. The introduction of washing stations and the education of younger generations about growing high quality coffee has been a symbol of positivity in Rwanda.
Rwanda has a slightly different flavour profile to that of an Ethiopian or Kenyan. What it lacks in bright citrus notes it makes up for in deeper, more concentrated fruit flavours. Often reminiscent of stewed apples it can have a syrupy more heavy mouthfeel. Rwandan coffee is also highly diverse in flavour, it also produces a small amount of speciality Robusta coffee.
We have a huge selection of both blended and single origin espresso coffees from artisan roasters. They range from espresso beans giving a luxurious crema and rich chocolatey, nutty flavours, thru to some lighter roasted beans that produce vibrant and bright espressos.
