Rwanda Nyaruzina


Rwanda Nyungwe

Þetta kaffi er, ólíkt því sem algengt er í Rwanda, ekki samyrkjukaffi heldur kemur frá einum og sama búgarðinum og er í eigu Umwizeye Furaha, en hún á tvo aðra búgarða. Einnig á hún og rekur vinnslustöðina sem kaffið er unnið í.


Nordic Approach, fyrirtækið sem við kaupum þetta kaffi gegnum, hefur unnið náið með henni í að sortera kaffiberin frá búgörðunum þremur þannig að hægt sé að rekja kaffið til stakra búgarða eða skika. Samtals eru um 92.000 kaffitré á búgörðunum hennar, sem er gífurlega mikill fjöldi, en meðal kaffibóndi í Rwanda er með á bilinu 250-300 kaffitré, enda mikið af Rwanda kaffi selt sem samyrkjukaffi (co-op).


English:


Nyaruzina is unique, in that it is a single farm producing its own lots. We have been working with the owner of the farm since last year on maintaining separation of the cherries from each of her three farms. The cherry grown here are kept separate and processed at a nearby washing station, where they are pulped, fermented, and soaked before being dried on raised beds. We are cupping through the production of each farm in order to make our selection of the most interesting lots to us.

This is one of two Nyaruzina lots we have available this year, this lot is delicate and had great fragrant characteristics.


Morondo Washing Station

Nyaruzina is one of three farms owned by a Rwandese business woman, Umwizeye Furaha. This farm is situated on an Island in Lake Kivu.

These farms where established in 2009, Furaha was originally leasing a nearby washing station called Morondo but earlier this year (2016) she purchased this washing station for the processing of all her farms coffees.

Most farmers in Rwanda are smallholders with between 250- 300 trees, while at the three farms that make up Kivu Belt there are approximately 92,000 coffee trees. This region of Rwanda is known for its higher altitudes and volcanic soil that assist in the production of great cherry.
