Rwandan coffee has returned to its excellent quality thanks to the drive of local growers and developmental assistance from Europe and the USA. Rwandan coffees are famous for their soft, rich and full flavours with 'grassy', tropical notes. With this beautiful Muhura coffee, you'll experience bursts of skittles with subtle notes of blueberries and juniper. A new Roastery favourite!
Rwandan Muhura is produced through a natural process, a new and experimental technique for Rwanda, making this a rare coffee.
MUHURA NATURAL PROCESS:
Sorting was undertaken upon delivery of cherry to remove underripes, then the cherries were taken straight to raised beds for drying. It takes around 30 days to fully dry the cherries.
Rwanda is blessed with ideal coffee-growing conditions including: high altitude; regular rainfall; volcanic soils with good organic structure and an abundance of Bourbon. The vast majority of Rwandan coffee is produced by smallholders of which there are thought to be around half a million with parcels of land often not much larger than just one hectare per family.
