    Roaster’s Notes
    In the south of Rwanda, a hard-working community of 650 farmers high on the slopes of Karambi Mountain cultivates Bourbón variety coffee cherries on small family plots. Upon reaching peak ripeness, these cherries are carried, by mule, bicycle, or often by hand to the nearby Karambi washing station for processing into green coffee of exceptional quality. Mill owner Edmond Kanyarnibwa and his staff, comprised of the same farmers who grow coffee here, over-see an impeccable process which involves ecopulping the cherries down to a red-honey stage, whereafter the coffee gets an overnight fermentation and wash in a traditional manner in canals. This is the second full year of production for the Karambi washing station, and we’re very happy to continue this journey with them from the very beginning!
