An excellent coffee with medium/sharp acidity, full body, and a sweet taste; faithfully representing the balance and flavour of Rwanda’s finest coffees.

We recommend using a V60 to brew this one up, although it is pretty flexible and can be brewed in many different ways!

This Rwandan coffee is produced by women farmers. There are some male members of the families but the women took over ownership and charge of the land.

85% of the growers that make up Cooperative Coffee Rusiga Sector (KCRS), have their farms above 2000masl. An incredibly diverse crop production happens on these smallholder plots, legumes, beans, sweet potatoes and more can be grown in between the coffee trees. This allows income to be spread over the year as well as producing food for their own consumption. Typically, you’ll find very small family plots cultivating an average of 6 crops.

Washed process in Rwanda typically looks a bit different to that which we understand elsewhere as washed. Fully washed denotes the process of pulping the coffee and allowing a 24 hour dry fermentation period before undergoing more traditional wet fermentation, followed by the typical soaking for 24 hours afterwards, more in line with what you would expect in Kenya. This yields a syrupy bodied coffee that tends to hold up very well as it ages. It’s not uncommon for a Rwandan coffee to still be tasting great at 18 months or more if stored correctly.
