Sorting Rwanda coffee beans

About this coffee

After purchasing cherry from producers, Rwinyoni sends the cherry through a strict sorting process.

First, washing station staff remove any lower-quality coffee.

Then, a specially trained staff visually inspects the remaining cherries for any visual defects.

After intake, cherries are pulped on a disc pulper before being placed in fermentation tanks to dry ferment for 12 to 18 hours.

Following fermentation, parchment is washed in clean water and placed in thin layers on tables to sundry.

Here, it is sifted regularly to ensure even drying.

The parchment will be covered during the hottest times of the day and at night to prevent condensation.

The resulting tasting notes include cranberry, sherbet, caramel, and grape.
