Location: Gikangaga, Karambi Mountain
Cultivar: Red Bourbon
Altitude: 1650 masl
Tasting Notes: Berries, Bakers Chocolate, Hazelnuts
Best Brewed: All brew methods
Roaster Notes: Light and clean in the cup. As an espresso the coffee brings out the chocolatey flavours as well as the hazelnuts, and a hint of the berries - more like a jam. As a pour over, the berry notes begin to shine bright and complement the hazelnut chocolatey flavours.
Rwanda - Mutovu River
This coffee is named after the river that flows at the foot of the site, and also provides the washing station with its water source along with the rainwaters that come down from the mountain.
The small station is just 2 hectares in size. The station was built in 2012 and RTC took ownership in 2018, employing 5 full time staff with an additional 70 during the season. 90% are women. 995 farmers contribute cherry to Motovu’s annual production. All have successfully passed though or are active participants in RTC’s training program.
