    18 grams, 30-32 seconds, 40 gram extraction

    Our current offering for Tipping Point is a blend of two coffees. We've profiled these two coffees separately and blended them post-roast. Our intention is to match density and bean sizing so they extract at even rates, bringing you the most flavour clear cup of coffee.

    The first coffee is from a mill in Southwestern Rwanda called Rugali. It's the second year we've purchased coffee from Rugali and we couldn't be more happy. In 2018, they had an amazing crop for both production quantity and quality. Producing beautiful washed Bourbons which they're paying premiums to nearby farmers in their region of Nyamasheke.

Perfect blend

I'm normally a single-origin drinker, going for high acidity and fruitiness. However, I love the way this blend brings me a little of what I love mixed with chocolatey notes. It's like eating chocolate-dipped fruit and who could say no to that?

Really nice cup of coffee. I used French press and drip methods. All who drank the coffee commented on its high quality.

Great cup of coffee

This was the first bag of coffee I ever bought and I love it! I can't attest to the tasting notes but it is a great beginner friendly coffee. Will definitely be buying again!

Good, but hard to dialed in

The smell of the coffee when you open the bag is out of this world, but seems to be pretty hard to get it dialed in for espresso.
Anyway, will keep trying and playing around with their recipe. Tons of crema though!
