The Nyakarenzo washing station, in Rwanda’s Rusizi District, pursues only the highest quality microlots. All microlots pass through countless selection processes until only the crème-de-la-crème remain. Only the ripest cherry with absolutely no quality issues are accepted. Cherries are pulped, fermented in concrete tanks for 12 to 24 hours and then washed in clean water. After fermentation, the beans are separated into five different grades. Only the heaviest beans are selected for microlot production. The incredible attention to detail and dedication pays off. Nyakarenzo has a silky body on top of a vibrant acidity. It is bursting with fruit flavors; think hibiscus, yellow plum and kiwi.
