Specialty coffee, 100% Arabica, carefully grown in a precise geographical area, carefully picked, processed, selected, and freshly roasted, in small batches, specific to the origin and method of processing.
Rwamatamu Coffee Washing Station is owned and operated by Gaston Rutaganda. He built the station and started his coffee plantation in 2010. He processed cherry from his 15-hectare farm, along with the cherries that he purchases from nearly 2000 neighbors.
Rwamatamu Station sits off the shores of Lake Kivu, along the East African Rift Valley. During the day the station receives wind from Lake Kivu, and at night the wind coming out of the Nyungwe Forest. Before processing the cherries, Gaston floats the cherries to remove any floaters. The sinking cherries are then passed through a disc pulper before entering the fermentation tank. After 12 hours, the parchment is stomped and rinsed with water before going to the grading channel. Parchment is sorted in the pre-drying area for one day before being placed in the sun. Due to thickness and wind, the coffee dries within 10-13 days.
Rwamatamu Coffee Washing Station was awarded 10th place in the 2015 Rwanda Cup of Excellence.
