Nyakizu - Rwanda (fully washed)

Tasting notes

Apple — Lychee — Marzipan

Nyakizu washing station lies deep in the south of Rwanda, close to the border with Burundi, right next to the Nyungwe natural forest. The region is known for its high potential in coffee production. It shares a lot of the features that make the coffee of the Kayanza province in Burundi so extraordinary. High altitude and rich soils in a favourable climate with plenty of rainfall in marked seasons. The sandy clay soil in the region is more acidic than in other parts of Rwanda and has a rich topsoil with a lot of organic matter. The climate is marked by a gentle humid breeze that is the companion of all the coffee washing stations in the region. This breeze is one of the quality ingredients of Nyakizu coffee: drying the parchment can take up to 35 days! In this high-altitude region, farms lie scattered from 1700 to 2100 meters above sea level.
