This Rwandan Kilimbi 903 Filter is a great example of Rwanda’s thriving coffee industry which supports a country once blighted by severe poverty, segregation & genocide. Not only has production increased, but specialty coffee now comprises more than one quarter of the national harvest. As one of the most highly regarded emerging coffee markets, Rwanda has invested in more washing stations – and therefore more transparency for us as coffee roasters and drinkers. The more transparency, the more accurate our reading of an individual crop can be, and also the more likely it is that the individual farmers are making even better returns on their investment. The Kilimbi Station was built in February of this year in order to capitalise on the exceptional coffees being produced in this region. Built on the shores of Lake Kivu, coffee here is delivered as fresh picked cherry by local smallholders then sorted, floated, pulped and fermented for 8 hours before further sorting and drying.
Coffee purchased from Kilimbi can expect to fetch around 30% more than other regional coffees, and 40% more than the average national price. This is due to the fixed price model our brokers have implemented here, and also to the quality of coffee cherry and meticulous processing. This particular lot, #903, was separated because of its exceptional cup quality.
