Getting product details...

Bright berry notes. Plums, cherry, sweet with a hint of caramel.

Early this year we had a great opportunity to purchase a large entire lot from a Technoserve supported project in the south west of Rwanda. The Cyivugiza village is made up of about 1500 farmers who will care for, maintain and harvest from their trees selecting only ripe cherries

The ripe cherries are delivered to the Karengera washing station to be sorted, graded and de-pulped using a low water Penhagos Eco-pulper.

The next stage involves an wet and dry fermentation followed by further sorting using water. The best cherries will sink so these are separated for drying on raised african drying tables. The drying period lasts for about 12-15 days until moisture content has reached about 12%. The coffee is turned regularly and covered during the mid day sun.

We are really excited about supporting this area and a Technoserve project (via Falcon Speciality). Their mission is to empower people in the developing world to build businesses that break the cycle of poverty. In coffee this is achieved by improving the quantity and quality of coffee they produce and ensuring a fair price is always paid.
