Rwanda Cyesha

This lot comes to us from Muraho Trading Company’s Cyesha Coffee Washing Station in Nyamasheke, Rwanda. Muraho was founded by two brothers, Karthick & Gaudam Anbalagan. Cyesha is their newest washing station, acquired in December 2021. Coffee from Cyesha is extra special because of the volcanic soil and high altitude, up to 1800 meters above sea level, of the farm. The washing station is also near one of the majestic African Great Lakes, Lake Kivu. The wind flow from the lake through the surrounding hills is ideal for drying coffees. Cyesha upholds the highest of standards to achieve the best quality specialty coffee possible. Only red ripe cherries are received at the station. The cherries are all checked upon arrival, then resorted on sorting tables and then passed through an intensive floating quality process. After floating is done then the cherries are pulped and dry fermented for 12 hours. After that the coffee is washed, graded and soaked. Finally, the coffee is moved to a pre drying area to be hand sorted until it is moved to the drying tables. Muraho Trading Company takes pride in testing and experimenting with different processing methods. They are proud to be the first company in Rwanda to be given authority from the governing board to produce Natural and Honey coffees back in 2016.
