Rwanda KCRS


Our interpretation of the 'Jewels of Rwanda'. A startlingly good washed coffee from a relative newcomer. The all-female KCRS co-operative was established with the help of Jacquie from Kinini who has also assisted with training best practice farming methods -- some years later these women are now expert coffee farmers... and we think this is a very good example of premium washed Rwanda with easy to identify red-currants over chocolate.

Mayaguez and Jackson bourbon varietals.

Syrupy-bodied in the cup, but not quite sweet. Redcurrants over chocolate with a black-tea like dryness on the aftertaste. Floral... rose?

85% of the growers that make up Cooperative Coffee Rusiga Sector (KCRS) have their farms at 2000masl or higher. An incredibly diverse crop production happens on these smallholder plots, legumes, beans, sweet potatoes and more can be grown in between the coffee trees. This is not always to the benefit of the crop, but does allow income to be spread over the year as well as producing food for their own consumption.

Processed at at the nearby Kinini wet mill using a technique which is synonymous with Kenya.  The coffee is pulped and allowed 24 hour dry fermentation period before undergoing more traditional wet fermentation, followed by the typical soaking for 24 hours afterwards. This gives rise to the syrupy body and holds up very well as it ages.
