About this coffee;
Back in 2012, half a million new coffee trees were planted across 38 hectares in Rwanda’s Northern Province. The processes in this area are very well controlled, including the use of satellite technology to monitor the coffee plants for any signs of infestation or disease. The picked coffee is taken to the Kinini washing station where they lay the cherries out no more than 2 inches deep and turn them regularly to ensure even drying. Each batch here is labelled to ensure micro-lot traceability.
There are some interesting and unique varieties of coffee in this region, with the main one still being Bourbon, known for being a tall plant that produces excellent cup quality at high altitudes.
This is the first lot of naturally processed coffee from this area, grown at extremely high altitudes of over 2000 metres above sea level. Due to the slow development and ripening of the coffee at such elevation, this micro-lot has developed intense fruity flavours like blueberry and mango.
