Our coffees from Rwanda are directly traded with producers and we are able to offer full transparency and detailed information on these coffees. For more information on how we source coffees take a look at our Transparency Report

Producer Overview:

Bwishaza co-operative is located north of Kibuye close to lake Kivu. You can view the exact location via the link to google maps. The co-operative produces a wide range of coffees with their main focus on clean, juicy, bright washed coffees. They also produce a range of natural processed coffees specifically for us.

Rwanda coffee sorting on tables

Harvesting and Processing:

Coffee is delivered daily during the harvest period (February to June) by small hold farmers. Usually, they deliver anything between 10 and 100kg depending on the size of their farm.

After delivery coffee is floated in water. Defects tend to float and the good quality cherry will sink. After flotation coffee is pulped to remove the fruit and then fermented dry in tanks for about 12 hrs

After fermentation, the coffee is washed and graded in channels to remove mucilage and to separate coffee by density. It is then moved to raised tables to dry.

Drying takes place in two stages. The first stage is done undercover to allow hand sorting to take place and gentle drying to avoid parchment cracking. After 48hrs of shade drying the coffee is moved to raised tables to dry in the sun until reaching 12% moisture. Each days processing is kept separate to create separated lots. 


After the coffee has dried it is stored in a cool stored room and samples are sent away to be roasted, cupped and graded in Rwanda and also sent to us to be sampled. Once we've selected the lots we've like to purchase the coffee will be dry milled. This process involves removing the parchment layer and further sorting to remove defects.

Brewing:

Our coffee capsules are compatible with all original Nespresso compatible home machines (excluding commercial models and the Vertuo type.) Water temperature and machine quality makes a big difference to the final product. For best results make sure to fully warm the machine and flush water through before brewing.

Our Nespresso compatible capsules are great brewed at a variety of ratios. For a short, intense coffee we recommend brewing 30-40ml. For a longer coffee, we suggest 60-70ml.

Subscription Terms and conditions:

  • The subscription charge will be collected at the period of time specified when ordering (ie every 1,2,3 or 4 weeks)
  • Your subscription can be cancelled after the first 3 orders.

A convenient alternative to coffee beans

We currently have a subscription for Rwanda coffee beans, which we grind & then usually brew in a cafetiere. This has been our preferred way of brewing coffee for a few years.
We also have a Nespresso capsule machine in the cupboard, which has been unused for some time. These capsules have enabled us to make the odd, single, cup of coffee, quickly and conveniently. The taste is slightly different to our usual brew, because it is slightly stronger and more of an espresso taste.
However, because the coffee is from Horsham, the taste is superior to the usual coffee capsules on offer. We like to have these capsules on-hand as a convenient alternative to the beans. Well done Horsham! Now can we have a decaf capsule please?

amazing on the first week

I bought three boxes, consumed the seven capsules during the first week of production. I was amazed by the result, better than any Nespresso capsules. then I realized the quality started to drop. My advise; buy as little as you will consume in a week to get the best “Espresso like” Nespresso .

Not strong enough

Overall, I would say the coffee pods are good. My only criticism, one pod is not enough and I have to use two pods to make the coffee strong enough
