Sourcing: June is Pride Month and we're celebrating all summer long with this lively East African blend! The team at GG were aiming for a blend that both challenges the palette, and yet, is sweet and approachable. With those two ideas in mind, we chose a coffee pairing of our Kenya Rung’eto and our Rwanda Kanzu Lot #18. Our Kenyan peaberry offering is from high up in the southern foothills of Mount Kenya on rich red volcanic soil, the areas surrounding the coffee factory are ideal for producing some of the finest Kenyan coffee. 

The other half of the blend comes to us just over Lake Victoria in Easter Africa. This bourbon from Rwanda hails from the Nyamasheke district. Nestled right above Lake Kizu, at an amazing 2100 meters above sea level, the Kanzu washing station is known for its amazingly sweet and clean coffees. The Kanzu washing station is nestled against a huge national forest called Nyungwe, so it’s protected for biodiversity and from deforestation. The forest collects cloud cover, generating a special misty microclimate that slows cherry maturation and protects the coffee from climate extremes.
