This Rwandan coffee is produced by Nkara, a washing station located in a district called Gakenke in the rugged northwest of the country. The station is operated by Musasa Dukunde Kawa, a company operating multiple stations in the area. During the harvest, Nkara collects ripe cherries from over 2000 small scale farmers of the area. They then handle all the de-pulping, washing, drying and sorting. In addition to the great work the cooperative does with quality improvement, they also run various social programs that contribute to the livelihoods of the members (school fees, medical insurance and even free cows as a bonus payment for quality cherries). This Red Bourbon cultivar is sweet and syrupy, with hints of red berries, brown spice and black tea flavour.
