– Café des Mamas – naturally processed coffee from Rwanda with juicy fruit flavours
– Kamundu – naturally processed coffee from Kenya with a touch of macadamia and passion fruit
The farm is in hands of the Rodriguez – Luethje Family since 1959.
The initial road was built around 1965 to connect the farm with the town Union Juarez. Years of hard work had to be invested to rebuild the plantation and to modernize the wet and dry milling facilities. Nowadays the farm management takes care of weed control in a mainly manual way to protect the environment and the same goes for the shade management.
Muxbal recognizes that it is only with enough beneficial sun that they will get the optimum quantity and quality of the beans.
It is only with educated and well-prepared staff that all things work smoothly, from the picking of the ripe cherries, to the proper wet and dry process and many other activities required on the farm. Besides the housing and sanitary facilities, there is a school, a childcare nursery and a medical facility on the farm. Finca Muxbal is RFA certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria.
The high altitudes and rich volcanic soil are ideal growing conditions, and they produce mainly supreme quality in Rwandan coffees. Normally coffees here are produced as washed with bright acidity and distinct red fruit flavours. In recent years, the number of washing stations in Rwanda has increased dramatically. Specialty coffee now comprises nearly one-quarter of production.

This coffee is naturally processed on raised African beds. Natural processing is a rarity in Kenya, which has built a fine reputation on the back of exceptional fully washed coffees. Ripe cherries are selectively harvested and floated to select only the ripest, highest quality cherries for processing. These cherries are placed in a single layer on raised drying beds and dried in the sun for up to 6 weeks. The cherries must be manually turned periodically every day to ensure an even drying and prevent mould formation. Once the coffee has reached its optimum moisture content it is rested before being hulled, graded further handpicked, and finally bagged in GrainPro for export.
Our objective is to help people move on from commercial to specialty which means traceability, sustainability and a completely different appreciation of the sensory qualities of a coffee.
