 THE STORY BEHIND

Karisimbi coffee is located in a truly beautiful part of Rwanda.
Coffee in the northern province is grown at high altitude, even by Rwanda's standards, and Karisimbi is one of the highest washing stations in the country!
Based at approximately 2000 meter above sea level, Karisimbi's altitude is an advantage when it comes to drying washed coffee as it is slightly cooler, and this condition allows for more even and longer drying.

Karisimbi was established in 2015 and it processes coffee cherries from around 300 smallholder farmers in the local vicinity, who deliver their coffee during harvest season.
During harvest, cherry is processed in the evening and night-time, with the fruit being removed by machine before the beans are pulped in a Penagos depulping machine, dry fermented, washed and graded.

We selected this lot for its great sweetness and bright character, being the best lot we tasted from Rwanda washed samples of 2017 harvest.
