Getting product details...

From Horsham Coffee Roaster:

The Rwanda Karisimbi replaces the Liza until the new crop arrives in January.

We first visited Rwanda in 2014 and over the last few years we've developed some very close relationships within the Rwandan coffee community. We have visited Karisimbi washing station several times over the last few years. It is located about 2 hours drive north of Kigali in one of the highest altitude areas of the country, just over 2000masl.

About 300 small hold farmers delivery hand harvest coffee to the washing station where it is processed using a Penagos Eco Pulper. This low water machine removes almost all of the fruit meaning the coffee only needs to be left to ferment for about 6 hours to breakdown any remaining mucilage. After fermentation the coffee is washed and graded in grading channels before it is soaked in clean water for about 4 hrs. The coffee is then laid out to dry on raised beds and hand sorted during the drying phase.

In 2017 we funded a school repair project in the Rwanda Gishyita community. This year we are working on projects with a school local to Bwishaza and Liza washing stations. More information will be available soon and we are committed to working on long term projects in Rwanda
