From the Rwandan highlands emerges a coffee experience unlike any other, curated by our partnership with Muraho Trading Co. This collaboration isn't just about coffee; it's a commitment to uplifting Rwandan coffee producers, enhancing quality, and exploring new markets. Working alongside Muraho, we source coffee from their washing stations nestled in the picturesque Nyamasheke, Gakenke, and Nyabihu regions. Among these stations stands the remarkable Shyira Washing Station, perched at an impressive altitude of 2000 MASL. Situated amidst breathtaking landscapes, Shyira boasts a unique process infused with local pride and tradition.

At Shyira, every step is meticulously executed to ensure unparalleled quality. Cherries undergo rigorous hand-sorting before a gentle pre-pulp float, ensuring only the finest beans proceed. The cherries are then meticulously pulped and fermented in dedicated concrete tanks, with a touch of ceremonial foot-stomping to aid the fermentation process. This cultural practice not only enhances fermentation but also fosters a sense of community and ownership among workers. Amidst harmonious songs and rhythmic stomping, the magic of Rwandan coffee comes to life.

This exceptional coffee from Shyira epitomizes the Rwandan coffee journey, from meticulously sorted cherries to sun-drenched drying beds. Over 30 days, the cherries undergo careful turning and covering, allowing them to develop their distinctive flavors. Once dried, the outer fruit is removed, revealing the precious coffee beans ready for packing. Each step in this process reflects our dedication to quality and sustainability.

This Rwandan coffee, with its vibrant flavors and rich cultural heritage, is a testament to the resilience and ingenuity of Rwandan coffee producers. With every sip, consumers not only taste the flavors of Rwanda but also support a community-driven approach to coffee production. As we continue to evolve our partnership with Muraho Trading Co., we aim to deepen our understanding of the challenges faced by Rwandan coffee producers, ensuring a sustainable and impactful coffee journey for years to come.
