  • This coffee from the Nyagatare Washing Station is 100% Red Bourbon grown in Mahembe Sector, Nyamasheke District in the Western Province of Rwanda. This area constitutes of big range of high chained mountains of the country with altitude ranging between 1,700-2,100 metres above sea level. This part is in the high mountains of Rwanda.

    Currently the Nyagatare Washing Station works with over 675 coffee producers grouped under the Abatarushwa Cooperative supplying coffee directly to the Washing Station, around about 500 tons of coffee cherries per season!

    This coffee is processed with the fully washed processing method, using natural spring water from high mountains located near Nyungwe forest. Farmers are trained to harvest only ripe coffee cherries from their farm trees to ensure higher quality and prices when their harvest reaches the mill.

    During the harvest, Nyagatare Washing Station has very strict routines for cherry reception and sorting, cherry delivered by farmers must already be sorted by the farmers themselves, if this is not done sufficiently there are staff who will do further sorting with the farmers and also help provide advice for future harvests. The cherries are placed in a tank prior to pulping where any that float are removed and processed separately as lower grade coffee.

    Like a slice of lemon drizzle cake, there's loads of white sugar sweetness but with fresh lemon juice cutting through, leaving hints of pineapple and orange.

    Roast Information:
    Medium - through first, keeping the pace reasonably quick and push it through the gap to finish just before you reach second. Don't overdevelop it as you want the citrus and white sugar sweetness to shine.
