Kigeyo

Rwanda

We have been sniffing and slurping many recent Rwanda coffee arrivals and are very happy to land this lovely lot from the Kigeyo washing station to share with our subscribers. Rwanda’s farmers are mostly small landholders growing coffee and tea in addition to food crops. As part of the revitalization of coffee in Rwanda over the last decade, there are now more than 200 smaller regional washing stations processing coffee cherry, giving growers the opportunitiy to dramatically improve quality and build long term sustainable relationships with buyers. This selection from the Kigeyo washing station in western Rwanda has that ripe bourbon varietal sweetness we love with a nice wineyness and some delicate blackberry and citrus. Expect it to perform pleasurably in a plethora of brewing methods.
