Rwanda kirambo

£8.60

Blood orange and plum with vanilla notes and a golden raisin body

Kirambo coffee washing station sits on a hill with land stretching to the shores of lake Kivu.

The station was constructed in 2008.  For many years it was not operating in stability because the owner did not have financing for working capital, and the station was rented out to different people every year. For all those years, farmers lacked a consistent partner who would support them beyond buying coffee cherries. RTC purchased Kirambo in 2017, and operated it for the first time in 2018.

This year alone, all farmers are being registered to enroll in RTC’s farmer impact programmes and training for certification. The quality of the coffee and the openness of the coffee farmers at Kirambo have allowed RTC to produce high cupping fully washed and natural coffee at Kirambo.

Cherries are delivered to the Kirambo station and then floated and separated to remove any defective cherries. The coffee is then placed on the raised African beds of  about 2cm of thickness where it is dried for up to 30 days with regular turning each hour and covering during  night time.

All our coffee is sold as whole beans, which we recommend for optimum flavour and freshness.
