In the brew I'm getting:
Cherry pie, kiwi, milk chocolate and my taste markers are juicy and bold!
BRING ME THE HORIZON 🤘
Rwandan Coffee has held a special place in my heart throughout my coffee journey. The coffees I've had have always been juicy, but held a different richness and body than other African coffee origins. That, along with the tragic and incredible story the this country and their rebirth has made me appreciate the coffees I can purchase from here even more.
This coffee is an exciting example of Rwandan coffee. A Natural processed coffee that carries a deep sweetness and bright clarity that makes this coffee RAD as a filter coffee or through espresso! As an espresso I almost feel like I get a 'warm red juice' vibe, which is maybe just a Northern Irish thing...But it's freakin legit! :)
*boxes will be sent with 'hand labelled' stickers on this coffee 🖐
**Rwanda is blessed with ideal coffee growing conditions that include high altitude, regular rainfall, volcanic soils with good organic structure and an abundance of Bourbon. 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 late May early June.
Here we are! Process is ready to share and you're all welcome to get involved.
I'm Ben. A coffee professional and lover of rad stuff. Based in Belfast NI, and rocking a wife and 2 kids 😎 They make me suuuuper happy! I have been working in coffee for a while now. It's the best. The last 3 years have been spent as a co founder and project/general manager at a shop called Guilt Trip. I have also spent this time meeting, collaborating and creating with some of the raddest people I know.
With Process I want to connect people to this beautiful world of coffee, and tell stories as I work with brands and the people behind them. Everyone has a story to tell right?! And in the coffee world the stories are usually pretty interesting. On this new platform I want to offer a place of connection, a hub for collaboration and a destination for your higher level coffee experience. To help do this I have intentionally curated a supply of products that I think are awesome and rep worthy. It aint much, but I want this to all make sense. These are only the brands and products that I use, rate super highly, and love to shout about! I hope you're into them. Selling them also puts food on the table soooo that's kinda neat too
All products stocked are considered and selected for you and your daily adventures. Whether that's your barista get up, your next trip, the hike supplies, or just the stuff you need to just get you through that afternoon slump.
