Rwanda Nyamasheke Mwasa

Nyamasheke, Western Province

Run by Erasto Weneza and co-owned by local farmers, the Mwasa washing station is a glimpse into Rwanda’s bright coffee-growing future. Thanks to geographic conditions like mineral-rich volcanic soil and winds from nearby Lake Kivu, this washed coffee is bursting with sweet, deeply fruited flavors. “There are a whole lot of things in this world of ours you haven't started wondering about yet,” the Old Green Grasshopper says in Roald Dahl’s “James and the Giant Peach.” Fortunately, this coffee packs a fruit punch that’s as adventurous as navigating New York City with a magical, house-sized peach and a ragtag bunch of talking insect sidekicks. (It’s pretty wonderful.)
