Tasting of cranberries and limeade, this is one of the “eureka!” coffees that will create coffee addicts from the first sip.

Coming strong with the green citrus acidity and deep sweetness from honey and raisin, the Rwanda Kanzu is a sneaky low key way to get your family addicted to non-fruity African coffees. Described as “purple in a cup”, the balance, and bass of this coffee will create really interesting reactions as well as stretch your understanding of what coffee can be outside of commodity coffee.
Bringing honey to the table can often be better than vinegar, and brewing up Intent Roasters Colombia Aldemar Patino will accomplish the sweet floral cup that you want to share. This beautiful washed coffee will surprise and delight from what relatives might know as Colombian coffee. Nevertheless, keeping it simple and letting the coffee do the talking is the best solution to good coffee drinking.

Peaks Colombia Huila ages well, but if a couple of days off roast it can also be a vibrant delicious cup.
