Getting product details...

From Horsham Coffee Roaster:

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 first visited Liza washing station in May 2018 and have been buying coffee from them for two years.

Liza is owned by coffee farmer Jean Paul. The washing station processes coffee from his farm in addition to coffee from several hundred local farms in the area. Coffee cherry is delivered daily during the harvest season from February to June and processed on the same day. After delivery hand sorting and flotation is used to remove defects, after flotation the coffee is pulped to remove the fruit and fermented dry in large fermentation tanks. After fermentation the coffee is dried on raised tables and very carefully hand sorted to remove any defects. Jean Paul produces fantastic coffee and we are very excited to be able to work directly with him.

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

from £6.75
We can’t get enough of the well balanced, clean and juicy fruit notes and excellent caramel sweetness created from this carefully produced, outstanding microlot. Dry fermentation exposes the coffee to more oxygen compared to the wet method and this can make a significant difference to the final flavours. Horsham Coffee...

A traditional, lower acidity, coffee from Brazil. Horsham Coffee Roaster have been buying coffee from the Recanto farm since 2015 and we have always been impressed with the quality. The farm is inside an extinct volcano which means it's growing in some of the best soil in Brazil!
