Casa Espresso - Rwanda Karengera
Subscription only coffee
Getting product details...
Location, farmer and processingThis coffee is grown by around 2,600 smallholder farmers from the villages of Cyivugiza and Kirimbi at 1,650 metres above sea level and processed at the Karengera washing station in the Nyamasheke district of Western Rwanda, and is of the Red Bourbon varietal.
The ripe cherries are handpicked by the smallholders and processed at the Karengera washing station. The cherries are sorted in a flotation tank by removing the unripe and defect floating cherries. This coffee undergoes the washed process, whereby the cherries are pulped to remove the majority of the fruit flesh, and the remaining flesh is removed via fermentation by soaking in water. After fermentation the coffee is dried on raised beds.
