Rwanda – Gatare, a new coffee available for a limited time from the La Colombe Atelier

From the southwestern mountains of the tiny African nation of Rwanda, this coffee comes from the Gatare washing station serving 470 individual small farmers.  After years of civil strife the Rwandan economy has reemerged with coffee as its backbone and the Gatare station is an example of how peace and investment can produce outstanding results.

Roasted on the lighter side, the cup produces wonderful aromas of maple and citrus and possesses a sweet body that develops into a nutty aftertaste making this coffee one to remember.

“This coffee amazes me, you’ll swear someone put a drop of honey or sweet molasses in it.”  – Todd Carmichael, La Colombe Founder
