The Story

Rwanda | Twongerekawa Coko | Whole Bean

If you can pronounce the name correctly, we'll sling you a free bag... Only kidding. This coffee from the Northern Province of Rwanda is super clean. The fruity flavours really cut through to your taste buds so you can sit back at enjoy the sweetness. Champagne, lime, black tea and grape juice.

Twongerekawa Coko is a co-operative based in Coko sector, Gakenke district, in Rwanda’s northern province. The co-op works with over 1,200 local smallholder farmers, each with an average plot of 1.3ha in size. This lot is Fair-trade and Organic certified with the producers making use of organic fertiliser such as manure, and mulching with coffee pulp.

Ripe cherries are carefully selected, first by hand and then by floatation in clean water tanks. The cherries are then de-pulped and dry-fermented for 12-18 hours. After fermentation the coffee is washed with clean high- pressure water in grading channels which also serve to further sort the coffee by density (the denser beans being of the highest quality selected for this microlot).

The coffee still in its husk (parchment) is then dried in the sun on raised African beds for 14-21 days depending on climatic conditions. The coffee is covered during the hottest part of the day, during rain and at night to protest against damage. Throughout the drying process, the co-op’s processing team carefully turn and handpick the coffee to ensure a consistent drying process and remove any remaining defects.
