Gatare Lot 5
Crop Year: 2017
Origin: Nyamasheke, Rwanda
Producers: Gatare Small-holders
Rwandan coffee has been increasing in quality and popularity steadily over the past decade, and the Gatare washing station has always been at the forefront of that movement. When it opened in 2003, Gatare was one of the only places in the country to process specialty coffee. Now there are other specialty producers in the region, but Gatare is still one of the best and we're really excited to bring their coffee to you!
Gatare Lot 5 is a bright cup, exhibiting some of the tried-and-true qualities of specialty coffee that we love. A green grape flavor lends this coffee a good blend of sweetness and tartness, while a citrus note provides some acidity and a nice juicy body. There's a small hint of vanilla at play as well, smoothing out the flavor profile and giving this coffee a delightful aftertaste. We found ourselves brewing a second cup of this one, and we think you will too!
