Process: Washed
Elevation: 1800-2100 masl

Tasting Notes: Nectarine, Green Grape, Genmaicha

The Kanzu washing station is centrally located within the Karambi Sector of the Nayamasheke District in southwest Rwanda, near enough the banks of Lake Kiva to see its waters on a clear day. These hills reach over 2200 masl and are covered in nutrient-dense volcanic soil - ideal growing conditions for dense, ripe cherries. Coupled with meticulous processing, Kanzu lots can be some of the most consistent, clean cups in Eastern Africa. 

At Kanzu, lots are separated by harvest week and numbered accordingly. Lot 17 was harvested mid-summer 2019 and was our favorite on the cupping table this year. The Bourbon variety is known for brewing up smooth cups with balanced, crisp acidity and a sweet finish - Kanzu Lot 17 is a great example of this varietal grown in another part of the world. There’s a crisp, malic acidity flowing through Kanzu, which we taste as fresh nectarine and green grape. That’s balanced by some classic Rwandan tea-like characteristics, reminding us of Genmaicha - a Japanese green tea mixed with roasted brown rice. The body is clean and round, with a mildly grassy, nutty, and comforting finish.
