Rwanda usually does not natural process the coffee. This natural lot is unique and show that the producers are truly progressive in their strive for excellence.Coffee isn’t native to Rwanda. It seems to have been brought to the country by German missionaries in the early 1900s. From then on, it grew to represent economic opportunities for many rural families. The region is now a sustainable source of high income for over 2000 farmers in Northern Rwanda.
The Rushashi coffee washing station is the largest of two washing stations owned by the Abakundakawa coffee producer cooperative. It is located in the lush and green Gakenke district. Here the area is characterized by towering spiky hills at high altitude making it ideal for high quality coffee production. More than half of the producers at Rushashi is women and you can see them walk along the road with their umbrellas over their shoulder to covers them from the sun.
It is no coincidence that this region produces some of Rwanda’s most sought after coffees with this climate conditions. Due to the sun, the coffee grows and develops a complex flavor. The coffee is hand picked and it goes through a particular long fermentation process that has been adopted by several nearby cooperative societies.
