RWANDA RUGALI WHITE HONEY
Could this be the best flat white I have had so far this year?
I got to taste this coffee at the end of last year while confirming our larger lots from Muraho Trading Company. Sweet V60’s, champagne espresso shots and peachy, butter croissants with milk. Heaven!!
I’m really excited to share this one with you…
Here is more on the wash station:
“A short 30 minutes’ drive South from Kilimbi you will arrive at Rugali coffee washing station (CWS). Rugali is by far our biggest and busiest CWS hence nicknamed “The Big Daddy”. Rugali was our second station built in April 2016.
Rugali is also located at the shores of Lake Kivu and is surrounded by the thousand hills of Rwanda. Every Wednesday you will witness and experience the true feeling of real Rwandese culture and farm life as the Rugali markets take place. Cows, goats, chickens, pigs and fish are all brought in using various forms of transport by the local community for trading. Further to this, an abundance of organic fresh fruits and vegetables are also sold at these markets.
Rugali in its short existence has gone from being a small CWS to one of the most respected and impactful in its community. This comes down to the tireless efforts of our Rugali families.
Coffees from this station has been used in multiple national and international barista competitions. Rugali along with little sister Kilimbi were the first stations in Rwanda history to produce and export Natural and Honey processed coffee legally. This has now paved the way for other coffee producers in Rwanda!
HOBE HOBE HOBE OUR RUGALI FAMILY!” – Muraho Trading Company
