Green Coffee: Rwanda Kilimbi Honey (Lot 657-1RM)
The terroir and elevation at Kilimbi Washing Station lends itself to produce exceptional Honey and Natural Processed Coffee, and was one of the first co-operatives to be granted approval to produce this style of coffee in Rwanda.
Dried on traditional African raised beds, cherry is meticulously hand-sorted before drying and removing any visually under ripe cherry. The coffee is then floated to further separate any low-density cherry and then laid out to dry on well-maintained drying beds. Grass and weeds are managed and removed from below the beds to ensure no additional moisture raising from the ground during the drying stage. Drying beds stretch across a large open plain where air flow and sunlight have maximum exposure to the coffee as it dries.
