Tasting Notes

Fruit Salad Sweets

The vast majority of Rwandan coffee is produced by smallholders of which there are thought to be around half a million with parcels of land often not much larger than just one hectare per family.
Coffee is grown in most parts of the country, with particularly large concentrations along Lake Kivu and in the southern province.
Rwandan smallholders organise themselves into cooperatives and share the services of centralised wet-mills – or washing stations as they are known locally. Flowering takes place between September and October and the harvest runs from March to July, with shipments starting in August through December. 

At the Kanya washing station strict processing are followed, the coffee is first passed through floatation tanks to remove any foreign matter, under ripe and floaters.
After that the coffee is machined pulped with the help of a Penagos de-pulper, after this the coffee is dry fermented in a specific storage space for around 24 to 36 hours and the mucilage removed before being placed to dry on raised beds for a period from 15 to 22 days.

    Your coffee brewing method determines the coffee grind level you require and with our available options of bean, coarse, medium and fine you'll able to find what you need.

    - Coarse grind if you brew with a french press/ plunger/ cafetiere

    - Medium grind if you brew using a percolater/ V60/ filter/ Aeropress

    -Fine grind if you use a moka pot/ bialetti/ espresso machine

    If you are buying coffee as a gift and are unsure what grind level to buy we would suggest going for Coarse (cafetiere/ cold brew). Chances are your coffee-loving recipient will be able to use this coffee and won't be disappointed, even if they own a coffee grinder!

    Whole bean coffee is the ideal option as it allows the coffee to stay fresher for longer and you can "dial in" the perfect grind setting for your brewing device. If you've fallen down the coffee rabbit hole like us we highly recommend getting yourself a coffee grinder. It's a game changer!

    The ultimate way to keep coffee tasting fresh is to buy whole bean, grind at home and consume within 6 weeks of the roast date. However, our carbon neutral coffee bags, made in the Netherlands, keep coffee beans and ground coffee fresher for longer using valve technology and high quality materials.

    Store your coffee in a cool and dark place.

    Bang on Rwanda coffee!

    I'm a big fan of coffee from this region and this one is simply delicious with very pronounced notes of sweetness! It's paired wonderfully with my home manual coffee grinder and AeroPress.
    Thanks a lot Carringtons!
