Rwanda is the land of 1000 hills and it has great growing conditions: High altitude, regular rainfall, rich soil and people working with passion. Our washed Bourbon has everything that Rwandan coffee stands for. Next to our natural lot you can now enjoy this washed version. Same farm - different flavour profile: Milk chocolate, orange ... and a hint of citrus.

We will be visiting Huye Mountain at the Start of June 2024. Keep your eyes peeled for our online Updates! 👀

The Cup

Clean and sweet, our washed lot will fill your cup with the rounded note of milk chocolate. Flavours of blood orange, date, and a hint of nutmeg add delicious complexity. The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, with a long finish we only find in the best lots from this region.

About The Farm

David is a key figure in the development of Specialty Coffee in Rwanda, having won Cup of Excellence many times by now. When he took the Huye Mountain private, he segmented the mountain range into seven zones - each with a different flavour profile. David is a true philanthropist who cares deeply about the families he works with. He offers incentives to farmers to produce high quality coffee, working with social premiums and quality incentives. We are proud to work closely with David, and this years lots are better than ever.

The Process

Huye Mountain has its own washing stations in the Huye District, where coffees are processed and quality control takes place. During the harvest, ripe cherries are handpicked and delivered to the station for sorting and grading.

After sorting, the best quality cherries are fermented naturally and dried on raised African drying tables for circa 20 days. Season after season, the quality of processing at Huye Mountain impresses, with flawless beans packed full of clean and complex flavour.
