Ruli Mountain - Q-Grader's Score 85:

Located in the Gakenke District of northern Rwanda, Ruli Mountain is an area with high elevations and volcanic ash tucked in the hills surrounding the our Ruli Mountain washing station. In this region, farmers are typically small landholders, with between 75 and 200 coffee trees. Ruli coffee is known for its sweet, fruit-forward beans that showcase a bright acidity, balanced profile and tea-like body.

Peaberry - Q Grader's Score 86:

A peaberry coffee bean results from a coffee cherry (fruit) producing just one relatively round (football-shaped) seed (bean) as opposed to the usual two half-beans which are roundish on one side and flat on the other side. 

From one to nine percent of any crop are peaberry, and are typically separated from the rest of the crop. They are said to have a higher density and more concentrated, robust flavor, rich aroma and with a distinct acidity – brighter yet lighter – than non-peaberry coffee beans from the same crop.

Kivu Lake - Q Grader's Score 85.5:

These beans are produced by approx. 5000 farmers in communities nestled on the shores alongside our Kivu Lake washing station. Coffee from this region consistently wins the Rwandan Cup of Excellence, for its sweet, full-bodied character and complex profile. The combination of lakeside breezes and high elevation produces a flavorful cup.

Great Beans

I love being able to purchase ethically sourced green coffee beans for roasting at home. The Ruli Mountain Pea Berry is my favorite of the Land of a Thousand Hills coffee beans.

Great flavor and supporting a great cause!

I wanted to try something different by roasting my own coffee beans and I am very happy with the results. The flavor was very good. I’ll buy more in the future.
