Rwanda Nyarusiza Station
This 100% Bourbon variety, Rwandan coffee is sourced from the Buf Cafe in the mountains near the village of Karaba. The Buf Cafe operates two washing stations - this coffee lot comes from the Nyarusiza station and follows standard Rwandan processing: floating tank sort, 8-12 hour dry fermentation, second sort for weight using water shoots, 24-hour soak prior to hand washing and hand sorting, and ending with placement on raised drying beds on the mountain valley floor.
Enjoy bright floral and fruit notes of strawberry, watermelon, and key lime with a hint of dark chocolate in this light roast.
