The land of the farm Serra das Araras is operated by Paulo Roberto Cintra Coelho. The coffee here was first planted in the 1960s and has been maintained ever since. This coffee is excellent for an espresso extraction for its high sweetness and good balance in milk beverages.
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.
Rianjagi factory is owned and operated by the Rianjagi Farmers Cooperative Society, which was built in 1950 and currently has just over 1,500 member farmers.
Coffee is picked and delivered by the local farmers on the same day. Before fermenting, the coffee is sorted for quality. Then the cherries are depulped, left to ferment in water tanks overnight and washed with fresh river water the next day, then placed on drying tables.
This is a wonderful bright filter coffee.
Coffee Kids is a beautiful project from Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung for sustaining and helping young coffee farmers to stay in business, give them all the necessary knowledge to grow better coffee and live a better life. It is a way of giving the necessary skills to the young people for becoming entrepreneurs in the coffee community.
This coffee from Huila makes for a very balanced espresso with chocolatey notes, but with a pleasant acidity making the cup more bright. Still the acidity is not that dominant, so it will work perfectly well as an espresso base in milk beverages.
