  • About Bwishaza Natural | 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) Dry the coffee cherry on raised tables.

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

Lovely Coffee

I really enjoyed this coffee. But it does seem to change slightly each year. This year is more fruity.

Clear flavour notes

One the best coffee I bought. It is light roasted coffee suitable for V60. The aroma I got was fruity and the taste is more as strawberry at the beginning with caramel aftertaste when it became colder the black-current was more obvious. Overall, love it

Terrific bean

I was super excited about this coffee and rightfully so. It's a very fine Rwandan: juicy, slightly boozy, sweet and decently acidic. After three weeks of rest its great in espresso. In Aeropress when dialed in (I go finer and do a 2.5min steep, water right off boil) I get loads of fruit and nice acidity.

It's an amazing bean, one of the best I've had this year and beyond! If you're into experimental processes and love a bit of funk - go get it!
