About

This 100% Red Bourbon was produced using coffee cherry from 250 smallholder farmers who deliver to Nkara washing station, the smallest of three washing stations owned by the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative.

Nkara is located close to the small town of Mususa, in the Ruli Sector of Gakenke District, in Rwanda’s mountainous Northern Province.

This is a peaberry lot, which refers to the size and shape of the beans. Normally coffee seeds develop as a pair with flattened facing sides, but sometimes just one seed develops and forms an oval shape to occupy the entire space within the coffee cherry.

This is called a peaberry and these small and round coffee beans are carefully selected and separated out from the rest of the crop during the milling stages.
