      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A warm mellow coffee with no bitterness more of an afternoon coffee than a wake you up blend

      The coffee I am reviewing is one of Taylor's limited editions rather than the coffee of the month as shown but it seemed a bit silly to have both coffee of the month and limited edition . My husband picked this up in Sainsbury's this week when he nipped in to get a few things.

      Now Taylor's of Harrogate is one of my favorite makers of coffee and as they own Betty's in York too it is easy for me to pop into to get some freshly ground coffee to have but failing that I will buy these packets from the supermarket

      Rwanda Lake Kivu Coffee
      ************************
      First this coffee is a Fair Trade coffee so it gets brownie points straight away for that.
      Taylor's describe this coffee as a medium roast putting it as 3 on their strength guide.

      Blurb on the packet
      ********************
      "Rwanda is home to some of the greatest emerging coffees in the world. The rich soil, abundant rainfall and high altitude of the country's volcanic mountains combine to produce exceptional coffees such as this medium-bodied cup that combines rich fruitful flavors with a floral and citrus acidity."

      The nose
      ****************
      When opening this packet the warm nutty smell of this coffee was noticeable straight away. I personally wasn't able to detect any floral scent that Taylor's say the coffee has.

      The taste test
      ***************
      I make the coffee in a cafetiere and use two scoops of coffee for an 8 cup cafetiere. To not let the coffee become "burnt" I allow the kettle once it has boiled to cool slightly for 2-3 minutes. As you put the coffee in the cafetiere you get the lovely dark aroma as the coffee grinds and water mix up in the pot. I allow this to "Brew" for a few minutes and then plunge the coffee. A tip I was always told with cafetiere is that the coffee is ready to plunge when you can plunge it down with a limp wrist and minimal resistance.
      This coffee has a warm nutty taste to it; the coffee is very smooth to drink and goes down well. However it doesn't have in my opinion enough of a caffeine kick for a morning cup of coffee when I need to get going. But as a mellow drink this is an ideal afternoon coffee for when you do want something not as strong at towards the end of the day. Unlike some roast coffee's I have drunk there is no bitter after taste to this coffee.

      Availability
      *****************
      We bought this from Sainsbury's for £2.64 for a 227 gram bag how long the limited availability coffee's are on the shelf for I don't know

      Overall
      A warm mellow coffee with no bitterness more of an afternoon coffee than a wake you up blend
