Rwanda Musasa Ruli Coffee
Returning to our line-up is an annual favourite from Rwanda’s Musasa Ruli washing station. With crisp tasting notes of cranberry, honey & rhubarb, this filter roast is the perfect match for brighter spring mornings.
  • Flavour Profile: Cranberry, Honey, Rhubarb
  • Origin: Rwanda
  • Region: Gakenke
  • Variety: Red Bourbon
  • Altitude: 1,700 - 2,000 masl
  • Processing: Washed
The Musasa Dukunde Kawa cooperative manages three washing stations in the Gakenke District of Northern Rwanda with this coffee hailing from their first location, the Ruli washing station. Here they process the cherries from more than 1,000 local farmers growing Rwanda’s coveted Red Bourbon variety. As most of these farmers own less than a quarter of a hectare of land, working together as a cooperative allows for their harvest to be combined, processed and exported at significantly better prices.

The Ruli washing station is incredibly precise and takes pride in upholding these high processing standards. Cherries are hand-picked only when fully ripe and delivered for processing the same day. After pulping beans from their fruit the coffee is fermented in clean water overnight and then graded in flotation channels to sort higher qualities by density. Over a two week drying period these beans are continually sorted and stabilised to 11% humidity. Most impressive of all is the traceability of each lot with its unique code following the coffee from date of harvest all the way to its export preparation in Kigali. This precision is paying notable dividends for the farmers and the wider community. The Musasa cooperative is actively reinvesting this and now funds local education, medical care and transport - an impressive example of better quality coffee providing a better quality of life.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
