The Kanzu washing station harvests several lots of coffee over 4-5 months, picking and separating each lot as they ripen from March to July. This lot was dry fermented for 16-18 hours, washed, and then dried on a new, experimental three tiered shelving system under parabolic tents. This is done with the intent of creating a more thorough and even drying process for a larger lot of coffee. As a result, we’re left with a clean, fruity cup.

The Rwandan coffee industry is unique in that it has received significant, specialized aid from various programs since the end of the genocide in 1994. These programs focused on rebuilding the agricultural industry as a whole, with focus on cassava and coffee. For coffee, this aid manifested in the form of several washing stations, new coops, and training quality control personnel. It is largely due to this aid that many farmers were able to break into the specialty coffee industry.
