Rwanda Kanzu Natural

$ 22.00

Since 2009, the Kanzu community has invested in both the coffee itself and the community year after year. Washing station manager Cyprien has been with Kanzu since 2012. The same farmers come back every year. Not only is the quality always there, the recipe for that quality is equally consistent. On the investment side, Kanzu leadership goes above and beyond the typical infrastructure and technical assistance washing station owners often provide.

A few years ago, Kanzu built covered drying beds to test against the full sun beds previously used. So, while there’s a beautiful consistency to the recipe that makes Kanzu great, there’s also a sense of experimentation and creativity that drives innovation.  The cherries here ripen a lot later than most of the country and are frequently one of the last harvests of the season. The unique microclimate, meticulous harvest and processing, and constancy of community here keep us coming back every year.
