A beautiful microlot from this seasons harvest at Bwishaza Washing Station in Western Rwanda. The thick layer natural processing of this microlot has given us an increased sweetness and a really bright coffee that is bursting with berry and citrus flavours. 


We paid $4.08 per lb.* for this coffee which is 191.4% more than the Fair Trade price and 266.3% more than the average C Price for 2020.

*This was the price paid to producers before any shipping, haulage, storage and export/import fees.


Bwishaza Washing Station is a large co-operative made up of 500 members, the majority being smallholder farmers with plots ranging from 1600 to 2200 meters above sea level. During the harvest, coffee is delivered by farmers daily and the cherries are processed in the evenings.


The Processing


The cherries for this microlot were selected from the best growing areas of the co-operative and chosen to be processed as a thick layer natural. This means the cherries are laid out to dry in a thicker layer than usual (around 2 inches) on the drying beds.  This causes the cherries to dry slower, increases the ferment and develops more sweetness in the cup.


This is a sweet and juicy cup, where juicy strawberry pairs perfectly with a crisp, bright orange and grapefruit citrus hit.
