Description

Abadatezuka Cooperative is a group of smallholder farmers in Rwanda’s Western Province who deliver their coffee in cherry to the Cyato Washing Station, which is located in the Cyato sector of the Nayamasheke district in that region. The producers here grow coffee at elevations all the way up to 2,200 meters above sea level, and the washing station is located at 1,850 meters above sea level. The washing station was established in 2017.

This coffee is processed as a Natural, meaning that it is delivered in ripe red cherries by the producers, then sorted and dried on raised beds. During the drying period, the coffee is actively rotated and moved in order to ensure even drying.

One interesting facet to coffee here is that the native honeybees that live in and around the Nyungwe forest where the coffee is grown are said to be responsible in part to the “unique profile” this coffee has. The bee-assisted pollination, fertile ground (black humus and sandy soil), and cool lake-affected climate thanks to the area’s proximity to Lake Kivu contribute to the flavors found in the cup. The farmers use no synthetic inputs, either as fertilizers or as pest control.
