Notes: The aroma has blueberry and chocolate, and the taste is sweet, with a high dose of fruitiness (banana, blueberry, cherry) but it also has the cocoa flavor that you often find with Rwanda coffee.
Musasa is a co-op in the Gekenke region, which is in the north center of Rwanda, heading up towards Uganda. There are 1000 farmers in the co-op, and 80% are women. They are fair trade and organic certified. They have built schools with their proceeds, as well as donated funds to other co-ops in Rwanda to help them buy coffee processing mills.
These natural-processed beans remind us of an Ethiopia in many ways. Overall the body is on the creamy/syrupy side. It's not as clean nor acidic nor as sweet as an Ethiopian coffee, it's more mellow and smooth like a Yemen or Uganda coffee. Easy to drink and delicious.
