Rwanda | BUF Umurage

GRIND

QUANTITY

Description

This coffee was processed using the natural method at Buf Café’s Umurage washing station. Many of Buf’s natural lots are a blend of lots from their three washing stations. However, this special lot was produced entirely at Umurage, at 1,935 meters above sea level.

This lot is particularly rare. Rwanda is not well-known for its naturally processed coffees, as the government’s coffee program (post-1990s turmoil) has typically focused on wet processing as a means of achieving higher quality. As such, washing stations have been dissuaded from using the natural method, due to its traditional association with lower grade coffees. With the rise of specialty coffee, of course, it has become apparent that when undertaken with care and attention, natural processing can result in coffee of astonishing and unique quality. This exceptional lot illustrates the best that natural processing has to offer perfectly. It’s boozy, fruity profile is clean and sweet without a trace of over-ferment. The very high quality can only be attributed to Buf’s staff’s diligent attention to detail.
