Getting product details...

From Rounton Coffee Roasters:

Bwenda Washing station was developed by its owner, Bernard Uwitije, in 2018, after spending the two previous years learning how to produce coffees that met a specialty standard.

Bernard's background was as a home producer of coffee, but since honing his skills and focusing on processing methods, he and the team at Bwenda have been able to produce two lots - one of which we are lucky enough to be able to offer here.

The coffees produced at Bwenda are washed, and come from the various farmers who grow their cherries nearby. Bwenda was built to assist these farmers, who were previously relatively isolated. By supporting this station, these farmers will continue to be incentivised to grow the best crops possible, knowing that the processing available to them can allow them to fetch a premium for their cherry.

Bwenda has made us all fall in love with Rwandan coffee all over again. We couldn't find a Rwandan coffee last year that met our standards, but this was worth the wait. It's just a tiny bit tart, but with plenty of sweetness and a great body - think not just rhubarb, but rhubarb crumble! The best bit is that Bwenda is a brand new washing station, which means that thanks to your support in buying it, Bernard will be able to improve the quality of the next crops that come in. Long may it continue!
