Rwanda Misozi Kopakaki Coffee
Coffee Is Not Roasted Until You Place Your Order
Produced in the Karongi District in the western province of Rwanda, the Rwanda Misozi Kopakaki is a bourbon varietal that has a distinct apple flavour and raisin-like aroma that makes it such a delight to savor.
Planted around Lake Kivu, one of the African great lakes, the Kopakaki cherries are grown on nutrient-rich volcanic soil which perfect for the cultivation of coffee. Moreover, pure spring water that runs down from the surrounding mountains is used in its processing at the coffee washing station at the area. The Kopakaki is fermented through wet processing, and then are sun-dried on raised beds. This Kopakaki plantation is run by the Kopakaki Dutegure, a fair trade certified cooperative that is central to the development of their small but thriving community of farmers.The Kopakaki Dutergure ranked 18th out of 85 in the CoE competition in 2010.
Best enjoyed in medium roast, the Rwanda Misozi Kopakaki manages to be rich in flavour yet mild in body, a playful combination that pleases both discerning and exploring palates.
