    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffees are famed for their beautiful fragrance. The coffee taster’s lexicon is used to it’s full in striving to describe some of the aromatics that are glimpsed in the coffee’s aroma, both roasted and brewed. One of perhaps the most unusual is that of black tea. Others include: tangerine, stone fruit, red currant, lime, raspberry lemonade, floral, lemon, sweet, lavender, jasmine, blueberry, blackberry, bergamot, apricot, almond, wildflowers. It might be a surprise to find that it still smells and tastes of coffee! The coffee grown in this lush, green, mountainous area at altitudes up to 8,000 feet is referred to as ‘garden coffee’ due to most of it being grown on small-holdings of less than 1 hectare producing something up to 5 sacks of coffee beans.

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.
