Sterling Coffee Roasters Rwanda Gatare Lot 2
Wanting to try something new with your pour over or drip? This Rwanda is beautifully balanced with flavors that remind us of maple and mandarin oranges. This is a beautiful coffee for the Ratio, pour over, or straight espresso, but can get lost in milk.

This Gatare comes to us from the Nyamasheke region of southwest Rwanda and the renowned Kanzu washing station. Here, at altitudes of 1700m-2000m, the French Mission Bourbon varietal really sings. We absolutely love this coffee: redolent with juicy mandarin and super sweet maple syrup on the finish. Sure, as with all Rwandan coffees, there is the risk of “potato defect” (every now and again a cup will have a distinct wet potato aroma). But, without risk, there is no reward and this coffee is more than worth it. Besides, that’s how we here at Sterling live life: we grip it and we rip it!
