Superb coffees from Rwanda are usually well-known for offering fruity flavours such as berries and grapes. Musasa has a unique balance of sweet raisins, mouth-watering blueberries and cocoa milk truffles.
“Dukunde Kawa” means “let’s love coffee” in the local Kinyarwanda language – can this get any more wholesome?

Thinking of how to step up your coffee game? You’ve got to try our Musasa.

Origin
The Musasa Co-op is one of Rwanda’s largest co-ops, and found in the coffee-growing region of Gakenke, in the Northern Province of Rwanda. The really cool thing about this particular co-op is that they cultivate their coffee near a gorilla habitat in the mountains: pick some cherries, say hi to the gorillas!

Over 2,000 farmers create this magical coffee, and everyone gathers cherries from their farm before meeting at the Musasa mill for the next steps in production.

By contributing to specialty coffee which can be traced back to its source, these farmers have access to better living conditions and education for their children, as well as a sustainable way of living. The Musasa co-op also supports the community in a few other ways, too:
  • 80% of the producers are women;
  • Many farmers are able to replace their grass roofs with tiles, offering more protection from the sun and rot;
  • Members have been able to buy livestock;
  • Many now have health insurance for the first time;
  • Two schools have been built for local children to improve education in the area.

Natural process

Hand-sorted, ripe cherries are placed into a water tank and then separated by density – how is this done, you ask? After they’re placed into the water tank, the unripe cherries float to the top and are removed; only those that sink to the bottom are dense and ripe enough to be used. This method selects only the highest-quality cherries for processing.

After a little bobbing around in the floating tank, they’re taken to sunbathe on raised African beds for 20 to 25 days. This ignites the sugars from the fruit to make its way into the bean, resulting in fruity, sweet, juicy coffee. These sweet cherries must be constantly and consistently turned, or it will result in over-fermentation, which would not taste pleasant in the final cup.

This natural process is actually somewhat unusual for Rwanda, which normally uses the washed process, making this Musasa extra special for us. So brew it, get your feet up, sip and enjoy this spectacular coffee from Dukunde Kawa!
