 THE STORY BEHIND

This coffee is grown at 1700 masl on the Muhura Estate in the Gatsibo district in the Eastern province of Rwanda, which was established in 2010 by a local investment company.

However, they struggled with financing and approached Rwanda Trading Company (RTC) to begin providing working capital in 2011. RTC provided capital to the station for two seasons before purchasing the station outright in 2013. Since then, the station has processed on average 900 metric tons of cherry, and RTC's investment has upgraded facilities and improved both processing and management capacity at Muhura.

It is unusual for Rwandan coffees to be processed using the natural method. Huge government investment in the industry has seen vast improvements in quality of coffee produced here, however, experimenting hasn’t necessarily been encouraged. But we couldn’t be happier that the Muhura station has chosen to offer this Natural process lot this year.

The resulting coffee is fruity and very, very sweet. Juicy blueberry, dried fig and heady Morello cherry bring body, acidity and a complexity we haven’t seen before in Rwandan coffee.
