The Rubanda Washing station in the Mutambu region of Bujumbura province produces some excellent coffees. The Ntobo Farmers group consist of around 400 members, from the surrounding hillside delivering coffee in their groups to be processed, wet milled, fermented and conditioned prior to dry milling. There are up to 10,000 farmers in the region delivering coffee from their small holdings to this mill. The private mill is managed by a local organization – Risca SA, whose attention to detail and quality is showing results. They have been managing the private mill since 2010. Hand sorting of collected and delivered cherries is crucial prior to washing (and the 2-stage fermentation) to ensure only the ripest cherries are processed.
Complex and sweet, well balanced; perfect for espresso and pour over. Aromas of sugar syrup, toffee and honey break away to reveal sugar cane and pulped raisin sweetness and caramel flavours. Gentle yet crisp acidity, exude hints of delicious key lime pie.
