It has been a while since we have offered a Rwandan peaberry. We have always enjoyed their sweetness-balanced profiles, and this one from Cyarumbo is no exception. It was a true stand out on the cupping table and led us to buy this lot on top of our yearly Rwandan coffee relationships.

Founded in 2001, Maraba Cyarumbo was Rwanda’s first washing station. Before Cyarumbo was built, Rwandan farmers only produced sun-dried natural coffees with very few protocols for quality control. Transparency along the supply chain was non-existent, and farmers had no access to the international market. Set up as a model operation, workers at Cyarumbo were key in showcasing the best practices needed to maximise the quality potential of the country’s ailing coffee industry. To say they were successful at this is an understatement, as Rwanda has opened over 300 washing stations since then!

Cyarumbo is located in the Huye District of Rwanda’s Southern Province and sits at an elevation of 1,700 meters above sea level. The washing station services 568 members of the cooperative, who grow coffee locally – some with farms as high as 2,200 meters above sea level. The area has ideal growing conditions for high-quality coffee, with high elevations, good rainfall and steady temperatures year-round.
