ZIRIKANA RWANDA- Intelligentsia

ZIRIKANA RWANDA Single Origin Espresso- Intelligentsia



Official Note:Bright yet sweet notes of apricot and marmalade complement the tartness of cherry and lime. The finish is clean with a hint of orange zest.


My Testnote:不管是 bright, cherry, lime, and clean 其實都是說一樣的事,這是一杯有著明亮酸微甜的中非豆子!


對了,這個產區其實挺妙的
。Huye 的首都 Butare 是 Rwanda 的第二大城,而芝加哥傳統上也被稱為 Second City. 所以...

=======================


最近觀察到的,傳統上的非洲咖啡大國(Ethiopia, Kenya),豆子在芝加哥越來越少見。

例如:


Intelligentsia: FLECHA ROJA (COSTA RICA), MATALAPA (EL SALVADOR), LA TORTUGA (HONDURAS), ZIRIKANA (RWANDA), EKO JAVA (INDONESIA), TRES SANTOS (COLOMBIA).

Intelligentsia 只有一支非洲豆,中非的 RWANDA.



Metropolis Coffee: Balcones FTO (Peru) Yirgacheffe Bewaye (Ethiopia), Andino AAA (Colombia), A Tana Toraja (Sulawesi), Kayanza Kinyovu (Burundi), Bolinda (Bolivia), Sitio Serra Leite (Brazil), Brazil FAF Lot #62 (Brazil)

Metropolis 同樣的一支中非豆 BURUNDI, 另一支 Ethiopia 看得到但是點不到



Gaslight Coffee Roasters: Giovanni Lizcano (Colombia), Kapal Grade AX (Papua New Guinea), Rulindo (Rwanda)

Gaslight 一支中非豆 RWANDA


Bow Truss Coffee Roasters:  NATURAL ETHIOPIA SIDAMA, GUATEMALA ANTIGUA SAN RAFAEL URIAS ESTATE, COSTA RICA LA VIOLETA-TARRAZU, ETHIOPIA YIRGACHEFFE, PAPUA NEW GUINEA, KAPAL, BRAZIL MOGIANA


Bow Truss 兩支非洲豆 (ETHIOPIA) 輪流出

Bridgeport Coffe 有一支 Ethiopia ,不過上次沒點到
Kenya 的豆子完全消失在各家的豆單上了,原來去年乾旱這麼嚴重!雖然不是特別偏好,但是偶而還是想試試那個比醋還暴力的酸味。希望咖啡樹能活下來,不然下一次要喝到肯亞的豆子,說不定要等五年了
