This Single Origin coffee from the region of Gisanga in Rwanda, is from one of the best coffee-growing regions of Rwanda's central plateau. This Rwanda coffee is grown at altitudes between 1,650 - 1,850 meters above sea level (masl) and is known for growing high up in the mountains with clay, sandy soils and cool humidity.
This luscious coffee is a light roast, well rounded with sour notes of blueberry and deep rich chocolate. Light on the palate, our Rwanda coffee is best suited to filter and espresso style coffee.
This Rwanda coffee is 100% red bourbon specialty coffee and cups at 87+.
Farmers from the Gisanga region in Rwanda bring their harvested coffee cherries directly to the Gisanga coffee washing station (CWS) with approximately 650 tonnes of cherries per season.
The coffee washing station supports 850 farmers in the Koapambu Cooperative and is a Rwandan specialty Arabica processing farm.
This coffee is a Natural processed coffee. This Rwanda coffee is fully washed, using natural spring water known as “Theresa’s natural spring”. This is an old name from the 1980’s, when the Theresa family lived in the village and used this water for washing coffee using a home processing method.
When the coffee cherries are ripe and red on the trees, farmers hand pick and deliver them to the washing station daily. The coffee cherry processing for this Single Origin lot starts with placing the cherries in sealed fermentation tanks for either 72 or 96 hours. Once fermentation is complete, the batches are mixed and transferred to raised beds., where they dry naturally under the full sun. The cherries are turned every 30-40 minutes throughout the drying process to ensure optimal clarity - which takes 20-30 days until the beans reach 11% humidity.
Extraction and Brewing
Ideally suited to a basket size of 21g, this Rwanda Single Origin Coffee will taste best when extracted between 25 and 30 seconds. The notes of chocolate, port and blueberries will shine through.
Recipe for French Press
- 30 grams coffee per 500ml boiled water
- Water temp approx. 95-100 Degrees Celsius
- 9 mins total brew time including blooming period
Step 1 - Grind
Start with fresh roasted coffee beans and grind beans to suit a coarse grind.
Step 2 - Measure
Measure out 30grams of ground coffee and place it into the carafe. If you don't have a weighing scale, this is roughly 2 heaped tablespoons.
Step 3 - Prepare water
Boil hot water and pour a small amount into the carafe to agitate the coffee grinds and then pour in remaining 500ml.
Step 4 - Stir and saturate
Gently stir the coffee to make sure all of your grounds are saturated by the water. Place the lid on-top, but don't plunge just yet.
Step 5 - Let coffee brew
Set your timer for 4 minutes - the longer your brew, the more flavours you'll extract from the coffee and the stronger your brew will be.
Step 6 - Stir and scoop
Stir in the crust that has formed on top of the coffee and scoop out any coffee that remains on top. Allow coffee to rest for a further 4-5 minutes.
Step 7 - Plunge coffee and serve
Slowly push the plunger down so it sits just below the surface of the liquid, pour and enjoy your delicious brew!
