THE STORY


We love featuring coffees from the Nyamasheke District in Rwanda. The enormous Lake Kivu and surrounding volcanic loam produces surprisingly jammy, rich coffees. The Murundo is a superb example; you'll taste a syrupy black cherry body and a stunning sweetness almost like dessert wine. There's plenty of toasted sugar in there, too, so don't be afraid to add cream!!

Light roasted for drip and press.

BREWING RECOMMENDATIONS

We serve this coffee as espresso in our shops.  We use 20g ground coffee to produce 30g brewed espresso in 26-30 seconds.  If you don't have a scale and the espresso is between 7 and 14 days old, just aim for a volume a little over 2 ounces for a double.  Of course, feel free to experiment with the parameters to find your perfect coffee.  If our parameters make the espresso taste sour or bitter to you, just increase your brewed amount a few grams up if it's sour or a few grams down if it's bitter.  For our drip coffee, the parameters vary a little because we use a refractometer to control strength at 1.35 TDS, but if you don't have a refractometer just use about 12 grams of coffee for every 8 ounces of water.  Please contact us with any brewing related questions!
