About The Coffee

 

Rwinyoni washing station sits on the shore of Lake Kivu at 1,500 meters above sea level. The station, built in 2012, placed at the Cup of Excellence during its first year of operation. When you see the dedication and care that everyone at Rwinyoni station gives to selecting and processing only ripe, red cherry, it’s easy to see how they accomplished such a feat. Rwinyoni station continues to focus on high quality coffee production to this day.

Rwacof’s farmer training program focuses on empowering smallholder farmers by fostering sustainable, high-quality coffee production.

The farmers who deliver their cherry to Rwinyoni are flush with options of nearby washing station. Rwinyoni has very high-quality standards, but in order to be competitive, they must accept nearly all cherry delivered. If they do not, the farmer will choose to go to a different station next time in order to sell more of their crop and avoid the hassle of sorting.

After purchasing cherry from producers, Rwinyoni sends the cherry through a strict sorting process. First, washing station staff remove any lower quality cherry through flotation. Then, a specially trained staff visually inspects the remaining cherry for any visual defects.

After sorting, cherry is pulped on a Pinhalese pulper outfitted with a demucilager that removes up to 80% of the mucilage before fermentation. Parchment is then fermented for 10 hours before being laid out to sun dry on raised beds. While drying, the coffee will be regularly sorted to remove imperfections and sifted to ensure even drying.
