Rwanda Cupping, Golden Gardens

August 13, 2004

Michael's trip to Rwanda last month was an important first step in developing a relationship with origin. To continue the process, roasters from around the Northwest gathered together at the newly restored Bathhouse at Golden Gardens Park in Seattle to participate in a cupping of the 2004 harvest. The cupping and presentation of the burgeoning coffee industry was sponsored by Canopy Coffee and served both to introduce high-grade Rwandan Coffees to roasters and to get their feedback to take back to the growers and processors. This valuable input will be used to continue improving output and tailoring it to suit the specialty market.

The event was a great success and we plan to host other similar events on an ongoing basis. Please email us if you'd like to be notified of upcoming cuppings. For more information about Rwandan Coffees, contact Kelly Peltier of Canopy Coffee or Michael Lone in our office.
