Rwanda Gihombo Washing Station

Rwanda is blessed with ideal coffee growing conditions that include high altitude, regular rainfall, volcanic soils with a good organic structure and an abundance of sweet Bourbon.

The vast majority of Rwandan coffee like this lot from Gilhombo is produced by smallholders of which there are thought to be around half a million, with parcels of land often not much larger than just one hectare per family, with an average of approximately 180 trees each.

Gihombo wet mill is a privately owned washing station that was built in 2006, but only really became fully functional in 2011.

The mill is located near the shores of Lake Kivu in the northern part of the Nyamasheke district, in our view one of the best growing regions.

The station's cherry collection area ranges in altitude from 1600 to 2000 meters above sea level.
Gihombo is supplied by a group of 320 farmers from the sectors surrounding the washing station and averages a production total of around 30 tons of parchment annually.


Cupping Notes
Rindy citrus and lemon zest is upfront with plum-like sweetness. Flavour of maple and brown sugar with dark dried fruit, think dates & raisins.

WHAT YOU WILL GET

All of our coffee beans are freshly roasted by us at our traditional family-run coffee roastery in rural Kent. You will receive a bag of coffee that is very much a premium product, where the aromas and flavors will be exceptionally delicious, and remarkably better than what you may be used to from the supermarket.
