  • About Bwishaza Anaerobic Washed | Rwanda

    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.

    This is a special preparation limited edition micro-lot produced using a technique known as anaerobic fermentation.

    1) Harvest only very ripe cherry with careful sorting using flotation to remove defects and to wash the cherry.
    2) Place cherry into sacks and seal so that no air can get into the sacks for 48 hours.
    3) Pulp the coffee to remove the outer layer of fruit.
    4) Ferment the coffee again for 48 hours in sealed sacks and wash.
    5) Dry the coffee on raised table.

    This technique helps to enhance flavours and to create some additional acidity.

I am a very very fussy coffee drinker.
However the Rewanda Coffee is my go to daily Cafetière cuppa.
Never fails to be delicious.
I like to grind my own beans, as I find I can control the strength.
Lovely !!

Bwishaza Anaerobic Washed

Agree with many on here - this is no better than the standard Bwishaza option but costs significantly more £! Coffee pricing is getting a bit crazy now. Won't be getting this one again. Did anyone cup this?

Sorry to hear you were so keen on this one. You are correct, it is more expensive than the standard washed Bwishaza but we pay significantly more to the producers for experimental lots. As a licensed Q Grader I cupped this more than once directly against the standard washed version and the differences are subtle but noticeable to me on the table.

However I appreciate you feedback and perhaps in the future we look at bespoke microlots and processing that showcases a bigger difference in flavour profile. It might not be worth it to many customers if the difference between microlots isn't easy to identify.

Coffee has gone up significantly in price in green bean form over the last few years. We've tried really hard to keep our blends and some single origins below £10 per bag. Many roasters now charge over £10 per bag just for average blends with some dropping bag size to 200g. Our goal is to keep our bags at 250g and continue to offer a wide range of coffees of which some are below £10. It's a valid point though and we are always on the look out for some of the more affordable options.
