We've got it. Rwanda is the up-and coming star of the East African coffee world, featuring bright, juicy, citric flavor profiles, and a wonderful mouth feel. Moko Coffee is happily brewing Intelligentsia's newest Rwandan offering- Zirikana.
The word "Zirikana" means "show your commitment", and the name reflects Intelligentsia's commitment to helping develop the coffee industry in Rwanda. It's a big coffee, with no bitterness, tons of fruit flavors and a finish like brown sugar. We'll be brewing it in our drip rotation, and it's available in a French press, as well as to take home in a pound or half-pound.
