FUGI YOUTH FARMERS
Tasting notes : Sponge Candy, Blackberry
This is our second coffee coming from the Fugi washing station in Rwanda. We had previously a lot from the owner of the station : Emmanuel Rusatira. This time, we’ve selected a smaller production coming from a group of young farmers who work with Emmanuel. For us it is significant. Across the coffee world, most coffee farmers are becoming older as urbanization and cities attract the youth. We’ve seen this happen in our own country as well. Still, if we want to have coffee in the future, there has to be a new generation of farmers to handover farms.
Finally, this coffee is delicious. It has bright notes of blackberries and a sweet sponge candy finish, classic with coffees from Rwanda. We find the honey processing to boost that character to the benefit of the cup. It is our favorite at the moment.
Varietal: Red Bourbon
