Rugali is in the Nyamasheke District in the south west of Rwanda. Located on the shores of Lake Kivu.The station has seen vast improvements since being developed in April 2016. In its first season, Rugali sold natural processed coffees and was the first and only legally approved station in Rwanda to do so. Now, naturals in Rwanda are both common and revered in their appeal.
In late 2018, early 2019, the team at Rugali built out an amazing new dry mill that's pushed their quality control to a new level. Previously, they were using a publicly accessed dry-mill for all the coffees produced by Muraho Trading Co. Now, all of the coffee is being processed at Rugali and a vast improvement has occurred in the sorting and the efficiency at the mill.
This particular lot is a natural that has undergone an anaerobic fermentation. Once the ripe cherries have been sorted for quality they are placed in a tank and a plastic sheet is laid over the top. Cool water is then poured on top of the plastic sheet to create a sealed environment for the anaerobic fermentation to take place. After 48 hours the cherries are rinsed with the water on top and then dried on raised beds.

This is a unique coffee as the initial taste is more of a darker full body with a bit of bitterness from the wine but the aftertaste is more of lighter from the dried fruit.
Flavour was legitimate. First time purchasing this bean, won’t be the last. Brewed in both a chemex pour over and an aero press, both methods produced a delicious brew.
Very nice cup of coffee, it’s a winner
