With the German “Third Wave of Coffee” – pioneer Ralf Rüller we selected a coffee from the west of Rwanda: Lot #58 from MAHEMBE.
He roasts these beans “greener” than the typical espresso blends to preserve the intense floral notes. From this coffee with flavors of cocoa, nutmeg and sweet cherry, Josef Farthofer creates two very different spirits in Mostviertel, Austria.
On the one hand he distilled after KOCHERE NATURAL and KANGUNU AA again a coffee spirit for the Freimeisterkollektiv.
As a contrast, he made a coffee liqueur from the same coffee. These two spirits highlight very different aspects of the flavor complexity of these outstanding beans.
