About this coffee:

Karengera washing station lies in the green hills of south-west of Rwanda, not far from the southern shores of Lake Kivu. It was founded in 2006 and is one of two washing stations in the area that make up the Karengera Coffee Company (the other is Cyivugiza). Although the washing station lies at 1,800 metres above sea level, coffee around Cyiya is grown at altitudes of up to 2,000 metres.

Some 700 smallholder farmers from the local area deliver cherries to Cyiya. Almost all of these farms are very small - typically less than a quarter a hectare each. Most farmers use their small plots to produce both coffee (300 - 800 trees per farm on average) and subsistence food crops such as maize and beans to feed their families. The ripe cherries are picked by hand and then delivered to the washing station, usually in baskets on farmers’ heads and occasionally on bicycles or trucks.

This Rwanda coffee has an intense sweetness, with white strawberry and lovely medium juicy body cuppa. A coffee that will brighten your morning!
