Rwanda Rulindo Bushoki


Bushoki is an historic washing station in northern district of Rulindo, one of the most mountainous in Rwanda. After leaving a larger cooperative system several years ago, Bushoki has come into its own, taking advantage of ample groundwater to perfect their own take on Kenya-style processing, whereby cherry undergo a long post-ferment soak. The well-orchestrated operation, in which 1,400 farmers contribute cherry, transforms perfectly ripe Bourbon cherry into coffee that exemplifies the region’s potential, which is, by any measure, extraordinary.
