This coffee comes from one of our favourite coffee-growing regions of the world. Rwamatamu Washing Station sits on the shores of Lake Kivu, which borders Rwanda to the East and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the West. 

The washing station is run by Gaston Rutaganda. He established the washing station in 2010 and processes cherries from his own 15-hectare farm, and from up to 2,000 neighbouring farms. In 2020 our friends at Community Coffee Rwanda collaborated with Rwamatamu to implement and improve quality control measures. This lot is the outcome of that collaboration.

We find this coffee silky-smooth and extremely clean. The mouthfeel reminds us of oolong tea and we love the bold fruitiness. For us, this lot exemplifies the extremely high-quality coffees that are being grown and produced in Rwanda.
