This Rwandan coffee offers a unique sensory experience of roasted walnuts and honey, with bright finishing notes of plum and cherry.
Kayumbu Washing Station was built by the Rwandan army. Army-built stations are constructed to receive huge volumes of cherry each season. Rwacof purchased the station in 2013 and has been working with the 1,055+ farmers delivering cherry to the station ever since. Rwacof’s farmer training program focuses on empowering smallholder farmers by fostering sustainable, high-quality coffee production. The farmers who deliver their cherry to Kayumbu station are flush with options of nearby washing station. Kayumbu has very high-quality standards, but in order to be competitive, they must accept nearly all cherry delivered. If they do not, the farmer will choose to go to a different station next time in order to sell more of their crop and avoid the hassle of sorting.
