This coffee comes from the Mushonyi washing station which is located just one kilometer away from Lake Kivu. Over 1200 growers, who live and farm on the hills of Mushonyi, deliver their cherries to this washing station.
Mushonyi washing station has very high-quality standards and sends the cherry through a strict sorting process. First, the staffmembers remove the lower quality cherries through flotation. Next, they visually inspect the remaining cherries for any visual defects. Lastly, the cherries are laid to dry in the sun on raised beds where they are turned regularly to ensure even drying.
The farmers from this coffee are connected to the project ‘’Farmer Connect’’, which is a platform that brings transparency to the supply chain and gives farmers more visibility. By creating a digital wallet, farmers can generate proof of their identity and income.
We love this coffee because of his intense sweetness and creamy mouthfeel. It is clearly natural processed but still very Rwanda-like!
