Green tea, blackcurrant, and honey - that’s an interesting cup of Rwanda. 

We’ve been buying the coffee from Valentin Kimenyi’s washing station Gasharu for a couple of years now, and we’re always impressed not just by the experimental lots, but also the washed. This washed Bourbon is a testament to that; clean with a high sweetness, the education Kimenyi offers to locals farmers brings about higher graded cups and a better outcome for the farmers themselves. 

Whilst the washing station sits at 1670masl, the surrounding farms that bring their coffees to Gasharu Central Washing Station sit at 1600 - 2100 masl in the Nyamasheke District. Stumping (the cutting of older tree branches to make way for healthier, new ones) helps drive the high quality of the coffees, and once the cherries reach the station they’re processed by an experienced female workforce.
