This amazing specialty grade 1 coffee is available only for a limited time. We will roast only until stocks last on this one. From the district of Nyamasheke, these farmers focus on strict quality control through hand picking and sorting. The quality classification begins immediately after delivery to the washing station (or drying station in this case), the immature cherries are separated through the flotation method in water tanks. At Karambi they produce wet process (fully washed), honey process and dry process (natural) coffees, all three undergo an intensive grading technique to ensure that the A1 grade is made up of the densest beans.
These coffee trees are grown typically at an elevation of 1700+ meters above sea level, and use a traditional dry hulling process, that produces a well-balanced cup that will amaze your senses. This is a naturally processed lot and in terms of flavour and aroma, we believe it will meet the expectations of the most demanding connoisseurs, it has an intense melon-like sweetness, berry-like acidity and a silky body that you will love. It produces an excellent cup profile in both filter and espresso (only if you like your funky espressos of course), and we're not exaggerating when we say it's one of the best naturals we've ever had on offer.
