Rwanda Inzovu Cooperative $17

This sweet, juicy coffee is suited to both light and darker roasts boasting notes of jasmine and vanilla.  Inzovu Co-op is a clean cup with a good body and spine and was awarded a cupping score of 88.75 by Brendan and a team of coffee experts at the Rwandan cup of excellence in August this year.

Inzovu is 30 member co-operative.  The Co op calls themselves the 'Urengerekawa' or in English 'Let Us Protect Coffee' and is situated in Nyakabuye of the Ruisizi district, south west of Rwanda.   Sitting 1700m high above sea level,  Nyakabuye is a place destined for yielding high quality coffee: it has a cool climate without the frost and consistent rainfall. 

The coolest thing about Urengerekawa is that all profit, land and labour are shared equally among its members.  Taking care of 200 to 4000 coffee trees each, the guys from Urengerekawa are passionate about coffee and take pride in the important role coffee has in maintaining Rwanda’s economic stability.  Founded in 2007, by 2009 they had built their own washing station where the coffee is  fully washed and sun dried on raised beds and are now exported globally by the RWC (Rwandan trading co.)

This sweet, juicy cup is suited to both light and darker roasts boasting notes of jasmine and vanilla.  Inzovu Co-op is a clean cup with a good body and spine and was awarded a cupping score of 88.75 by Brendan and a team of coffee experts at the Rwandan cup of excellence in August this year.  Brendan loved this bean and the guys from Urengerekawa enough to bring it back with him from Africa so get the cupping cups out and get excited!
