“The creamy milk chocolate flavours are really complemented by distinct almond and juicy raisin flavours. Its creamy mouthfeel and very light citrusy lemon acidity mean that it works really well with milky coffees. It ends up tasting like a sweet milky, hot chocolate.”
Our espresso is actually made up of coffee from two different producers: Planalto Estate and Ngara Nyarusiza.
For the past 25 years the Planalto Estate has been growing speciality coffees in the highlands of the Nova Rezende, in the south of Mina Gerais in Brazil. The generous space (it’s more than 900 hectares in size), combined with the 3600 foot altitude and the surrounding natural forest, contribute to the farm’s unique microclimate - which is perfect for growing high-quality coffee.
The farm is managed by Sergio Mantovaninni who, together with his wife Mariza, inherited the farm from Mariza’s father.
The coffee for this lot is grown on a number of small farms in the Ngara region, about 18km from the Nyarusiza washing station. The producer, Bufcoffee Ltd., was founded by Mukashyaka Epiphanie in 2003, nearly ten years after she lost her husband to the genocide in Rwanda. Mukashyaka’s husband had a coffee farm at the time and sold his coffee locally. As a widow with seven children and some knowledge of coffee, Mukashyaka got support from Project to Enhance Agriculture in Rwanda through Linkages (PEARL) and set up Bufcoffee Ltd. It not only produces and exports coffee, it also empowers 4,608 women and coffee farmers social and economically. Through training and by sharing information on how to increase coffee yield, they’re able to impact the local community immensely.
