From Rin:

Our first Rwandan coffee and we're buzzing harder than a summer bee who's been necking too much Arabica pollen. Naturally processed, this is a typically spicy bean. We'd advise getting your nose well into your newly opened packet of freshly roasted Muhura and having a good sniff. You'll get that unmistakable fruitiness from the "natural process". If you're new to speciality coffee you'll be really surprised at how sweet coffee can be. And if you're a connoisseur, then you'll be drooling with expectation. This high-grown Rwandan Arabica is truly wonderful.

Muhura - situated in the Gatsibo District in the Eastern Province of Rwanda - was established in 2010 by a local investment company. However, they struggled with financing and approached Rwanda Trading Company (RTC) to begin providing working capital in 2011. RTC provided capital to the station for two seasons before purchasing the station outright in 2013. Since then, the station has processed on average 900 metric tons of cherry, and RTC's investment has upgraded facilities and improved both processing and management capacity at Muhura.

MUHURA NATURAL PROCESS:

Sorting was undertaken upon delivery of cherry to remove underripes, then the cherries were taken straight to raised beds for drying. It takes around 30 days to fully dry the cherries. (On average, 7kgs of freshly harvested cherry will yield 1kg of export quality green coffee).
