LEMONGRASS, GREEN APPLE
& DEMERARA SUGAR

Kilimbi is a new washing station in the Nyamasheke region of South West Rwanda owned and operated by Raw Material’s export partners Muraho trading Co. This is the first season that any of their production has been available in the UK. A small volume of washed and natural lots were produced for export with the assistance of Raw Material who have been implementing their fixed price buying model to the Rwandan value chain. This model, which has had great success in Colombia, ensures that producers are paid a fair, fixed price which is well above the market rate for their cherry.

BREWING GUIDE

 

We’ve been enjoying this coffee most when brewed with our trusty Chemex. 35g as a starting dose with a reasonably coarse grind really brings this coffees delicate notes and vibrant acidity forward. It really is a complex brew when the variables are properly balanced, have fun drinking the results whilst looking for that sweet spot!
