So sorry, we are making improvements
Sorry about this. We are making some big changes to our systems to make the process even slicker. We will be back soon for you to purchase through BeanMate. Sorry for the inconvenience
The local indigenous 'heir-loom' varietals - which grow wild in Ethiopia - are responsible for the unique flavour notes.
We will select our Mwami coffee traditionally from Rwanda but every now and again find a great example of the flavours we are after farther south in Burundi. We are still close to the Rwandan border.
Ripe cherries are delivered to the wetmill for careful sorting and floatation, to select only the densest highest quality cherries. The cherries are then pulped followed by fermentation for around 12 to 18 hours, depending on the climatic conditions. Once the mucilage has been broken down sufficiently the parchment coffee is throuroughly washed in clean water channels and graded further by bean density. After washing, the coffee is soaked before being dried in the sun on raised African beds for around 12 to 15 days, again depending on conditions, until the ideal moisture level has been reached. In the daytime the parchment needs to be raked and turned periodically to ensure a consistent drying process and prevent mould or overfermentation. The coffee is also covered in the middle of the day to protect it from the heat and UV of the sun, and at night time to protect it from rainfall and moisture. Once the coffee has dried sufficiently it is transported to the Ikawa Nziza drymill for grading, sorting and handpicking, before being bagged in GrainPro for export. Ikawa Nziza was started in 2014 in partnership with Schluter at an altitude of 1750masl to serve as a milling facility for high quality microlot coffees and ensure traceability.
