The Filter Blend - 1

This late spring version of The Filter Blend melds Sholi from Rwanda’s Muhanga District with Los Tablones from Jalapa, Guatemala. Sholi brings top notes of black tea and florals to the brown sugar sweetness of Los Tablones, evoking the rose blooms and warm afternoons associated with this time of the year.

The Abateraninkunga Ba Sholi (Sholi) Co-operative is known in Rwanda for its cup quality. Even more notable is the change it brought to the Sholi sector since its founding in 2008. The co-op became a major employer, encouraging a growth in local population as people gravitated towards the associated security of income, healthcare, and quality of life. The co-op has also been proactive: they have constructed a potable water tap, village centre, and health clinic for the entire community to use, including co-operative members.

Over the past few harvests, we’ve focused more on Guatemala’s Jalapa department (historically part of the “Fraijanes” coffee region) via exporter Primavera Coffee. Like other coffees in this year’s Jalapa collection (watch for Los Arcos and Las Brisas), Baudilio Lopez’ Los Tablones is all about sweetness with notes of honey, cashew, and sultanas.
