MEDIUM ROASTED

The process of roasting is what brings out the complex flavours and aromatics that make coffee so appealing to our senses.

The coffee we describe as medium roasted is a range that varies in colour and intensity according to the beans we are roasting.

Coffees in this range have a balance of fresh fruitiness and sweetness, with all of the complex fragrances and characteristics of their origin fully developed.

    As with other fine African coffees, the coffee taster’s lexicon is put to good use in describing the character. Notes of blackberry, baking spices, caramel, cranberry, raisins, berries, citrus, cream, lemon, strawberry, grapefruit, floral, cherry, vanilla, caramel, tangy orange, berry jam, lavender, honey, sweet black cherry and figs are described. Rwandan coffee is not mass produced as we know it in the west. It is known as the land of a thousand hills. Many farmers grow their produce on hillsides and within lush, untamed valleys on very smallholdings.

    This is one of the rarest coffees in the world and is certified 100% wild Kopi Luwak coffee. Our supplier uses an accredited certification standard for wild, ethically-sourced Kopi Luwak in consultation with leading proponents of animal welfare, the World Animal Protection organization and food-certification experts. This rare coffee is selected and partially processed by a civet. In actual fact, the civet eats the ripe cherries from bushes growing wild in the rainforest where its digestive juices do the job of removing the fruit from the pulp and silver skin that surrounds the coffee bean. It has a full, heavy almost syrupy body, low acidity, with notes of chocolate, caramel, molasses, hazelnut, fig and dates. It is very, very smooth.

The flavours in the cup are herbal, grapefruit, cherry, chocolate, walnut, white grape, vanilla, apricot and spice. It has a syrupy richness, exquisite flavour and the native volcanic soil gives it a rich, silky character. It is, deservedly, among the most famous coffees in the world. The Gayo 1 coffee varietal is unique to Indonesia.
