About this coffee

A fruity Rwandan.

Iwacu is a washing station in Southern Rwanda where local smallholder farmers deliver their freshly harvested cherries to be processed. It is situated in the Nyanza District, an area that is well suited to coffee production and where there is already a lot of infrastructure in place. 

The climate through most of the season in Rwanda is relatively cool, which assists in controlling the fermentation process. An eco-pulper is used here to remove the skin, pulp and 70% of the mucilage. The coffee is then dry fermented and afterwards is graded and washed in channels. It is then separated into two grades based on density before being soaked under clean water in tanks for 16 hours.
