Floral Honey, Baked Plum & Juniper
In the cup: Floral Honey, Baked Plum & Juniper
It is unusual for Rwandan coffees to be processed using the honey method. Huge government investment in the industry has seen vast improvements in quality of coffee produced here, however, experimenting hasn’t necessarily been encouraged. But we couldn’t be happier that the Muhura station has chosen to offer both this and a Natural process lot this year.
Honey processing is whereby some or all of the cherry fruit is left intact during the drying of the coffee. In this case 100% of the mucilage remains. This is the layer of tissue between the fruit pulp and the parchment that surrounds the bean, and is rich in sugars and pectins. The coffee is the dried under direct sunlight for 11 days.
The resulting coffee is vibrant and very, very sweet. Juicy baked plums, floral honey and heady botanicals bring body, acidity and a complexity we haven’t seen before in Rwandan coffee.
