Rob Says: As for most of our Rwanda microlots we work together with the Antwerp based company 32 Cup (say Tree To Cup). Thanks to the sustained efforts of their mother company Sucafina, we think they offer us year after year the finest coffees from this origin.

Nyakizu washing station lies deep in the south of Rwanda, close to the border with Burundi, right next to the Nyungwe natural forest. The region is famous for its high potential in coffee production. It shares a lot of the features that make the coffee of the Kayanza province in Burundi so extraordinary. High altitude and rich soils in a favourable climate with plenty of rainfall in marked seasons. The sandy clay soil in the region is more acidic than in other parts of Rwanda and has a rich topsoil with a lot of organic matter.

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