ROASTER'S NOTES:
As I mentioned earlier, this coffee made a big impression on the dudes and me. We cupped it on a table full of killers, and this was the one almost everyone pointed to. Taylor liked the other lot a tiny bit more, but we all gave him noogies until he reneged - then it was unanimous! Kibirizi is bright and tangy with notes of rhubarb, apricot, and fig and an elegant sugary-sweet finish. It’s just flat out awesome.

BREW RECOMMENDATIONS:
Let’s go with the Hario V60 with this one. Toss 28g of coffee in the top and pour 430g of water over the top. Shoot for a brew time of3:15. You’ll get a cup that is as exciting and vibrant as it is sweet and comfy.


IMPORTER’S NOTES:
We have two incredible lots from Kibirizi, which also come from a new washing station in its first year of operation, this one in Rwanda’s southern province in the district of Nyamagabe. Built and operated by two farmers from the area who wanted more control over the processing to preserve and improve quality, they are now processing cherry from their own 20,000 coffee trees along with cherry from neighboring farmers. These profiles are bursting with red fruit from dried cherry to raspberry to cranberry and have layers of sweetness — cane sugar, apricot jam, and creme brûlée, with elegant rhubarb and hibiscus notes.
