Kivu Belt Espresso

$19.00 - $62.00

The Kivu area in Rwanda is known for producing unique coffees that are complex and delicate. It has the perfect conditions for coffee cultivation, with nutrient-rich volcanic soil, and a unique micro-climate created by the humid equatorial mist that forms from Lake Kivu. it also has some of the highest elevations in the country.

This coffee was processed at a washing station called Murundo that is privately owned by Furaha Umwizeye. Umwizeye has planted over 80,000 coffee trees across three farms next to the picturesque Lake Kivu, and has branded her coffees “Kivu Belt”.

The Murundo Washing station collects cherries from Umwizey’s farms and 300 local producers, who have farms located at 1,700m -2,100m above sea level. This coffee from this lot comes from the small producers who deliver to the Murundo Coffee Washing Station, all with small plots of land with an average of only 300 coffee trees each.
