Sold by: Bean Smitten Coffee Roasters
Rwanda offers perfect conditions for growing coffee: high altitudes, volcanic soil and regular rainfall. Many of the growers are smallholders with very small plots whom regularly form farmer cooperatives to process the beans. This particular coffee is comprised from Lot 295 at Gitwe washing station in Southern Rwanda.
It is light-medium roast, with notes of Gooseberry, grapefruit, hazelnuts and brown sugar.
Can be brewed any way but we recommend as a filter or espresso.
All of Bean Smitten's coffees are ethically sourced and fairly traded.
Available to purchase in 250g and 1kg bags. 250g bags can be supplied as whole beans or ground just prior to packing, according to your preferred option (see below). 1kg bags are supplied as whole beans only. The 250g bags have an integrated zip-lock that can be used to reseal the bag, helping to keep the coffee fresher for longer. The 1kg bags are opened by cutting along the seal at the top. It is recommended you decant the beans into an air-tight container. Store your coffee in a cool, dry place and consume within 4 months of the roasting date shown on the packet.
The coffee bags are recyclable under a scheme provided by Terracycle, a global leader in hard-to-recycle waste. If you wish to take advantage of this, please post your used coffee bags to the address shown on the back of each packet. Note, that Bean Smitten are funding the cost of recycling themselves and can therefore only accept Bean Smitten coffee bags for recycling.
We will send whole beans as standard. If you require the coffee ground (250g bags only), please add a note telling us which type of coffee maker you use.
