Rob says: Very siked to present the first ever Natural Processed coffee out of Rwanda.

Here the producer follows the meticulous method for selection and drying of the cherries. After selection, the cherries go straight to the drying tables. They are spread out in a very thin layer to prevent mould growth during the drying and to ensure even drying. It takes around 3 weeks for the cherries to dry on the raised beds.

A ‘natural’ is sweeter and fatter than its washed version and the acidity lower. In Rwanda the first naturals popped up around 2015 and improved year after year. This MUSHONYI Natural is ‘dead’ clean, punchy and suitable for both espresso and filter.

THIS COFFEE WILL BE HITTING OUR COFFEE ROASTER SOMEWHERE IN DECEMBER
