Rwandan Specialty Coffee Beans - Kinini Rebero
We are delighted to offer this lovely specialty coffee from Rwanda!
It is becoming another firm favourite here at Flat Cap Coffee Roastery!
In 2012, 38 of the 252 hectares in the Northern Province of Rwanda were planted with Bourbon Mayaguez 139 seedlings, 2,000-2,500 in each hectare. This totaled nearly half a million new trees, and access to nurseries and supply of new trees continues. This regeneration was led by Jacquie Turner and Malcolm Clear. Not just limited to new trees, new roads were built to improve access for the many farmers that have to deliver their days picking to the washing station by 4pm in order to maintain quality. Coffee is depulped on a 4 disc McKinnon pulper, there are a number of tanks for fermentation both with and without water, leading to channels to both the soaking tanks and then down to the drying beds.

The Improvements now encompass a roasting facility, covered with a donation from our Full Circle event, the introduction of natural and other processing methods in 2019, and more recently a worm bed for turning the coffee cherry into organic fertilizer. There are plans for space to welcome visitors and provide somewhere to stay when visiting. Satellite technology is used to monitor leaf glare from the trees -any changes can be a sign of disease or infestation and early detection pays dividends when it comes to clean cups and good green.
In your cup, you can expect notes of fruit, lemon and chocolate, wrapped in a syrupy, caramel coffee with great body and sweetness. This is a light roasted specialty coffee that represents the best of Rwandan offerings.
