The richness easily penetrates the milk with flavours of creamy caramel and velvety dark chocolate mouth feel and finish.

Rwanda is one of the smallest and most densely populated countries in Africa. In a country where the average family farm size is less than a hectare, coffee production in Rwanda is a smallholder activity. Today some 430,000 families produce coffee in Rwanda, the typical farm having fewer than 200 trees.
Rwanda possesses ideal growing conditions for Arabica production. Coffee is produced along the entire shore of Lake Kivu in the western part of the country, as well as in the eastern, central and
southern portions of Rwanda. Coffee is grown at altitudes ranging from Rwanda's rich volcanic soils, rainfall distribution and clement yearlong temperatures favour the slow maturation of the coffee bean, creating a distinctive taste in the cup.
The coffee production in Mexico is the world's 8th largest with 252,000 metric tonnes produced in 2009, and is mainly concentrated to the south central to southern regions of the country. The coffee is mainly arabica, which grows particularly well in the coastal region of Soconusco, Chiapas, near the border of Guatemala.
Coffee production in Ethiopia is a longstanding tradition. Ethiopia is where Coffea arabica, the coffee plant, originates. The plant is now grown in various parts of the world; Ethiopia itself accounts for around 3% of the global coffee market. (Wikipedia)
We need a fact for this
This panel presents interesting facts about this blend. it’s aimed at breaking up the data and bringing more interest to the page with a big background. We’ll have to choose images carefully, and make sure there’s not information overload because there’ll be limited amount of space and it’ll blow out on mobile. So keep it shortish and sweet.
You can’t control where things sit on the image either from device to device, so images might have to be darkenned or reduced of detail.
