Red Bourbon

Process  Washed

Back in May we made our first trip to origin to visit coffee farms and washing stations in Rwanda. Of all the coffees we tried there was one in particular that stood out - this stunning washed red bourbon from the Ruvumbu washing station.

The Ruvumbu washing station is situated in the southwest corner of Rwanda on the shores of the absolutely stunning Lake Kivu. Like many other washing stations in Rwanda, Ruvumbu started life as a cooperatively run endeavour. Justin Musabyimana, a local farm owner and manager of the nearby Mahembe washing station, took over the Ruvumbu washing station in 2014. Under his ownership Ruvumbu has gone from strength to strength with the station producing some of the best quality coffee in Rwanda. Ruvumbu took 3rd place overall in the 2014 Rwanda Cup of Excellence Competition, and was given a Presidential Award at the event for receiving a cupping score above 90 points.

In the cup it has a sweet and syrupy body with notes of stewed fruits, toffee and grapefruit.
