Broadsheet Coffee Roasters

For May, DrinkTrade sent me a bag from Broadsheet Coffee Roasters. These coffee beans are from the Kanzu washing station in Nyamasheke distric in western Rwanda. Apparently these beans are from “Lot 36” which are processed differently from the normal “Kanzu” beans according to the website.

Opening the bag, I’m greated with subtle fruit and floral aromas. Making my latte, I taste very light fruit flavors. Even the coffee flavor is subdued. This reminds me as if I’m drinking something very diluted. Overall, I wasn’t impressed with these beans.
