Limited Edition: Rwanda Kinini Kinigazi
This coffee has reminiscent aromas of Blackcurrent, taking us back to better times, sipping hot Ribena at the Christmas market. Notes of caramel and honey give this coffee a sweet edge, with a hint of anise.

The Kinigazi lot is a separation from amongst the 633 farmers that are currently using the Kinini washing station, chosen from trees at altitudes of 1950 – 2200masl. The wash station is located in the northern province of the Rulindo district.
The highest altitudes have gradually found their picking season extending. In part, this is due to the quality program Kinini has introduced, providing fertilizer where needed, but more importantly creating a network and introductions to existing cooperatives, as well as using an innovative satellite tracking system that measures the leaf reflection to forewarn of any damage or pest infestation starting. This enables them to get to the area and deal with the problems before it has an impact on the cup.
A share of the money from the Kinini coffee goes towards a local non-profit organization, A New Beginning Rwanda, which funds a growing school and what started as a health post and is now becoming a hospital.
