Coffee of Grace - Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received coffee at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Grace Hightower De Niro (wife of Robert De Niro) has created a line of Coffees of Rwanda to celebrate and support the coffee farmers of Rwanda. Through direct sourcing, fair trade, ethical practices and environmental stewardship, her dedication to the coffee farmers of Rwanda will allow them to create a sustainable business that can be passed from one generation to the next.
I received a package of Rwanda Medium Light Roast coffee and since it comes in coffee bean form, I ground up the beans and brewed myself a carafe of coffee. I always drink my coffee without any additives like sugar or cream, because I prefer to taste the coffee itself. This coffee is incredibly smooth and silky, with a hint of caramel and citrus. It's also available in Rwanda Medium Dark Roast, Rwanda Espresso Roast, and her Signature Series - Rwanda Buf Cafe.
If you're looking for a heartwarming (and tummy-warming) gift for a coffee lover, there is a Two Coffee Gift Box where you can choose up to two flavors, or you can select the Coffee and Grinder Gift Box with the choice of any one coffee flavor plus a Hario MSS-1-B hand grinder. When you make a purchase, you enhance the lives of the Rwandan people by empowering them with the opportunity to market their unique products to the world. Watch the video HERE.
Visit www.coffeeofgrace.com for more information and to place an order. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter, then enter to win your choice of two coffee flavors! Giveaway is open to US residents, ages 18+. Giveaway ends on October 31, 2013. Good luck!
