WHY DID WE SELECT THIS COFFEE?
This month in the Fruity Profile we chose to veer away from Tanzanian and Ethiopian coffees to bring you an exceptional micro-lot from Rwanda. Rwandan coffees generally have a rounded caramel-y flavor, and this one is no exception.

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Ian T. from Aug 16 to Sep 06 2020 at Pulley Collective in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We typically use the Probat UG-22 roaster for this profile. We have strict guidelines for each of the coffee profiles, and this roast has to pass the development time ratio test as measured in real-time by the roasting software, Cropster. Once it does, it is approved for production.
We perform Quality Control via a process of coffee tasting called cupping on all of our production roasts twice a week at our facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Cupping is attended by Q-certified cupper Ian T., roaster Dave H.and founder Suyog M. All coffees are evaluated on a scoring scale of 0 to 3.
- 3.0 = exceptional roast - exceeds expectations
- 2.5 = on par with profile - matches expectations
- 2.0 = good roast, but 1 or 2 elements could be improved - needs improvement
- 1.5 or lower = failed - do not ship
