A stunning washed Rwandan coffee with lovely sweetness and complexity

A great everyday drinking African coffee with a lovely soft orange acidity, molasses sweetness and delightful black tea finish.  A light-medium roast makes this suitable for both espresso and filter.  

Rwamatamu was founded in 2015 by husband and wife Rutaganda Gaston and Mukantwaza Laetitia as they looked for a means to suppor their family.  Rwamatamu coffee farm and washing station sits atop rich volcanic soil, at 1600 to 2000 meters above sea level within the Western province of Rwanda. The estate is located near the picturesque rolling hills that flank Lake Kivu in a region that provides a tropical highland climate.

Roast Level: light-medium

We roast the Rwamatamu to a light-medium level that really showcases its balance,  soft acidity and sweetness.  Perfect for filter and and makes a stunning espresso but please allow the beans to rest for a minimum of one week if possible.
