Varietal Red Bourbon
Process Natural
Altitude 1,700 masl
Roast Profile
We roasted this coffee for filter. With a short time of only 7:45 and an ending temperature of 210°C, we've highlighted the bright and incredibly sweet notes of blueberry and strawberry, whilst keeping the creamy texture.
Import Partner Falcon Coffees

Cup Profile: A delightfully sweet and decadent coffee. We find notes of strawberries and cream, blueberries and tropical fruits in the cup.

How We Drink: We love this coffee as a black pour-over. We use 15g and pour 50g of 100° water every 30 seconds, until a total of 250g water. The whole brew usually takes around 3:10.

It also brews fantastically in a cafetiere. We follow our brew guide, available here.

More Details: The owner of Bwenda, Bernard Uwitije, is a native of southern Rwanda, in the district of Nyamagabe. Coming from a region where coffee was a dominant crop, he first entered the sector trading ordinary home processed coffee. He later learned of the added value if one processed fully.

Wanting to set up a proper and sustainable business in the coffee sector, he built his first wet mill near his hometown in 2016. He used the first year to learn all the details of operating a wet mill successfully, and he built a second Washing station the following season, where he then mastered processing large volumes without compromising quality.

Bwenda was his third washing station, which he built in 2018 after realizing a group of farmers who were a bit isolated, did not have a closer washing station to process their cherries into high quality coffee. 2019 was the first season of operating Bwenda, processing only 1 container worth of cherries.

Bernard is already developing various programs to help farmers delivering to Bwenda with extension services and he is expanding the capacity of the wet mill.
