Rwanda Rutsiro Cyondo

Country: Rwanda

Region: Rutsiro, Western Province

Variety: Bourbon

Process: Wet-Process, Sun Dried

Elevation: 1600 – 1850 meters

 

 

Built in 2014 by Nyirabera Louise through President Paul Kagame’s Ubudehe Project, the Cyondo washing station sits at the shores of Lake Kivu, incorporating cherries from over 180 coffee growers (including 72 women) in Rutsiro District, Western Province.

Benefitting from volcanic soil and winds from nearby Lake Kivu, coffees here are sorted and floated, both before and after depulping. Coffees are then dry fermented and undergo a double wash, double rinse process before being moved to pre-drying tables for additional cleaning and sorting. Parchment is then dried down to a moisture content of 11% in ten to fourteen days on raised drying beds.

LetSequoia has established in-depth farmer education, worker training, and daily on-site supervision of operations. Through this dedication, we are excited to offer this season's Rwanda Rutsiro Cyondo.


RWANDA RUTSIRO Ingoboka

Country: Rwanda

Region: Rutsiro, Western Province

Variety: Bourbon

Process: Wet-Process, Sun Dried

Elevation: 1600 – 1850 meters

One of our first Cooperatives in Rwanda, Ingoboka washing station sits along the Gashashi River and Lake Kivu, made up of 362 Ingoboka Cooperative members, including 193 women. Coffees here are picked from 1600-1850 masl.

This year, LetSequoia introduced a ‘New Agenda For Harvest', offering a more structured and organized method to their daily operations. Farmers and workers benefitted from on-site education and training, upgrades to facilities, and a more effective method of daily payment. We can't wait for you to try our Rutsiro Ingoboka.
