This coffee is from one of two washing stations managed by the Fidele family in the Nyamasheke region of Rwanda's Western Province. This washing station is set up with a Penagos 800, and they are producing mainly fully washed coffee. Cyato sits at roughly 1850 meters above sea level, and the local coffee farmers have coffee planted well above 1900 meters, growing primarily older Bourbon cultivars. Coffee is wet processed, hand picked, and dried at the washing station, but then moved to a house nearby where they store the dry parchment to rest before preparing for exportation. This coffee was sourced by the awesome folks at Coffee Shrub and it is the Fidele's hope to reinvest in their wet mill for the upcoming season in order increase the mill’s capacity.  We are currently exploring this coffee as a single origin espresso and are enjoying the complex notes of cane sugar and dried raisin, along with citrus-like brightness in the final cup.
