Rob Says: The Rwanda crop of 2017 was the best since long. And this Macuba lot was maybe the highest cupping coffee we tasted from this origin ever. It’s like mixing top lots from Ethiopia and Kenya in one. We hope you like this coffee as much as we do, on filter or espresso.

Harvest in Bizi village takes place mainly in the rainy season from March to June. Coffee producers will take the cherries from their lots to the centralized washing station for processing. Here, they receive payment according to the quality and quantity they deliver. Macuba has strong quality standards in place to separate the good from the bad coffees.

WE HOPE TO START ROASTING THIS LOT THE SECOND WEEK OF APRIL
