We Tasate: Sweet Tea, Honey Dew, Confectioner sugar, and Green Apple
Imagine standing on a ridge that overlooks the entirety of the Congo. Then imagine a lake sitting across the entire border. Then imagine leaning out over that ridge, and whispering to yourself, "Everything the light touches." Then you take a sip out of your #1 Dad mug, and a tear slides slowly down your face. Rwanda Kanzu delivers that experience, giving you a literal taste of its soil's location. Here, coffee grows alongside cassava, sweet potato, sugarcane, and bananas, just shy of 2000masl. Here, 50 men and women harvest a crop that's then dry fermented for 16-18 hours before it's washed and soaked, then dried again on raised beds with mesh bottoms for quick circulation. Then it's brought to you, from us, magically, over an epic journey that's well worth the effort for the taste. You're lucky to have it in your hands. We're lucky to bring it to you.
