We're proud to introduce the first of our two lots from an exciting relationship with Sundog Trading and Baho Coffee in Rwanda. Our producing partner, Emmanuel Rusatira is meticulous with his natural processing and it shows up in the cup. While drying, he turns the coffee every 2 hours, using a mesh netting, then shade drying, then full sun drying at different moisture levels throughout the slow and gradual 55-day process. This coffee is clean and tropical with a juicy mouthfeel and notes of papaya and cane sugar.

Keep an eye out for his washed coffee from the same Bugoyi washing station, releasing next week!

Here are some words from Emmanuel, which demonstrates the passion for quality and care for the people involved in their work:

"We would like to introduce Baho Coffee as a family run, quality and service focused, speciality coffee export company. With more than 15 years of experience in the Rwandan specialty coffee industry, we, as the Rusatira family, found the opportunity to set up our own coffee washing stations. The location and specific management of each station shows itself in unique flavour profiles. We developed our own grading system and are continuously experimenting with washed, honey, and natural processed coffee. All year round we work together with coffee producers to support them both on the field and financially. This is to produce the best coffee cherries of the region and boost quality, year after year. All our attention goes to selection, depulping, fermentation, washing, drying, storage, and continuous quality control. We believe coffee talks. Cleanliness, mouthfeel, aroma, sweetness, acidity, tasting notes - all come to the surface in the cup. Listening to our coffees and sharing their conversation is our main goal. That is why we want to connect with you to establish a long term relationship wherein we can support each other, grow together, and make a difference in coffee culture and beyond!"
