Oooh this coffee. It oozes class, beautifully demonstrating what great Rwanda coffees do so well, balancing a creamy deep body with lush acidity that hits you from the first sip. This area in Western Kenya around Lake Kivu offers a great array of stellar coffees. But when we went to try a selection over at awesome African coffee importers Schluters, the Mugonero shone out. The dense body and rich juicy stewed fruit acidity really made it stand out. It's a joy however it's brewed, but makes an exceptional espresso.

A straightforward 19g in 27/30 secs 34/36 out offers a superb bright and balanced shot.
