Considered to be in the heart of the African coffee growing region, coffea was introduced to Rwanda pretty recently (in the early 1900s by German missionaries). Commercial coffee growing was established by the Belgian colonial government in the 1930s and by the 1970s it had become the single largest export in Rwanda. Nowadays, coffee is grown almost exclusively by 400k+ smallholders who own less than a single ha of land.

Macuba washing station lies in the high-altitude hills of the Nyamasheke District. The station, which sits at 1,685 meters above sea level, receives coffee grown as high as 2,100 meters above sea level. The prime location is combined with exceptional agricultural practices, allowing Macuba to produce some of the best coffee in Rwanda.

Cherry is selectively handpicked by farmers and delivered to Macuba washing station. Floaters are removed. Then, the high-density cherry is hand sorted to remove any visible defects, pulped and dry fermented for 24h. Wet parchment is washed in clean water and placed in thin layers on tables to sundry. Here, it is sifted regularly to ensure even drying. The parchment will be covered during the hottest times of the day and periods of rain. On average, it takes 22 days for parchment to dry.

Thanks to the high hygiene standards during harvest, processing and post-processing, the presence of the famously infamous potato defect is super low to almost non present in Rwandan coffees during recent years. Macuba is a crisp, clean, juicy cup full of hibiscus notes and caramel. Delicious both as filtr and espresso, it is one of the highlights of our selection so far.
