For our Bright & Aromatic offering we rotate your coffee destination every three months to ensure you receive the freshest crops from the tastiest microlots. You will generally receive coffees from East Africa. The Great Rift Valley has the perfect terroir and varietals to produce complex coffees, with nuanced flavours, bright acidity and clean body. Often the flavour profiles are fruity, floral and tropical.
Our current Bright & Aromatic offering comes from the Shyira Washing Station situated in the Nyiabu district of Rwanda. Shyira is owned by the Muraho Trading Company, building Shyira in 2017 with the hope of making a positive impact on the area. By 2018, not only had Shyira produced some truly unique tasting coffees, they’d paid for health insurance for all their farmers for the entire year. This coffee brings distinct notes of red apple, honeysuckle sweetness and a white grape aftertaste.
We recommend you endeavor to receive your coffee as beans, as it will aid your coffee in staying fresher for longer and will keep those flavours and aromas that make that coffee distinct and vibrant locked in. If this isn’t possible we can grind your beans to suit your filter brew method. Your coffee subscription will be accompanied by a detailed leaflet outlining tasting notes, historical backdrops, environmental landscapes and inspiring and innovative stories of the coffees journey from the farm to your brew at home.
