David Rubanzangabo established the private washing station where this coffee originates in 2011, having grown up in the area. He works hard to make sure the 1330 farmers who deliver cherry to his station receive fair premiums and incentives; ranging from livestock to health insurance. Each small holding consists of roughly 200 trees, with each tree yielding ~4kg of cherry. This #965 Lot makes a wonderful espresso; an intial sensation of sparkling citrus, reminiscent of orange and lime, hits the tongue. This mellows out into the sweetness of dried dark stone fruit. When black, the #965 has a thin body like black tea, whilst the addition of milk brings a more smooth chocolate mouthfeel.
