Rwanda is the land of 1000 hills and blessed with ideal growing conditions for coffee: High altitude, regular rainfall and rich soil. We have been roasting coffee from David Rubanzangabo’s washing station since 2013, and this is the second year that he has produced a naturally processed coffee. We love this cup for its rich, unique and developed sweetness: blueberry, maple syrup, winegum and sugar cane are all present in the cup. The mouthfeel is coating and luscious with a lasting finish.
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.
