The Quality of our coffee
The quality of our coffee comes not only from the nature of Arabica coffee. The coffee cherries are floated into water; large cherries are separated from small and defected ones. It then passes through a wet processing which use water for moving and making the extraction of coffee beans. Beans are carefully hand sorted out by attentive Rwandan women to remain with high quality beans that are slowly sun dried to get the high quality parchment!
