Blood orange & peach tea, with a silky honey texture.
Hundreds of farming families, from amongst the iconic rolling hills of Rwanda, are behind this honey processed coffee gem. The birthplace of Muraho Trading Company, the pioneering Kilimbi washing station is special for a number of reasons. The coffee, delivered here by over 750 farmers in the surrounding hills (some arriving by boat across Lake Kivu!), has featured multiple times on Barista Competition stages and paved the way for natural and honey coffees. Kilimbi was one of the two first washing stations to be granted approval to produce natural and honey processed coffee in Rwanda by National Agricultural Export Development Board! The introduction of these processing methods to Rwanda has meant the discovery of a wider variety of flavours, like the distinctive blood orange and peach tea in this Kilimbi lot, that we know you’ll love.
