We’re always hunting for new origins and farms we can work with, and that can often lead us to wonderful coffees and opportunities to help good people and projects, if only in the short-term. This is one such moment and we gladly bring to you this amazing specialty Arabica coffee from one of the most beautiful countries in the world, Rwanda. Although not specifically direct trade it is nonetheless a great traceable coffee supporting good people and projects. For now this is a guest coffee.
