This coffee comes from the Nyambumera washing station in the Nyamasheke District of Rwanda, a washing station owned and operated by the COOPAC cooperative. The cooperative was founded in 2001 and now has more than 8,000 farmer members, delivering to 50 washing stations. This small lot comes from a farm area of just under 1.75 hectares and represents about 4,290 coffee trees total. It is coffee delivered by two producers: Jean Buranda and Didace Bucyana. Coffees in Rwanda typically undergo both dry and wet fermentation: This lot was depulped and fermented for 12 hours dry before being soaked for 24 hours. The mucilage is removed by washing four times, then the coffee is dried on raised beds for 15–21 days.
