Akagera

The Why

Akagera is the first of four Baho coffees we're roasting this year, and is the first natural process coffee we've worked with from the region! These coffees are imported by Sundog Trading (working in coalition with Semilla) and exported by Baho.

Coffee growing has been essential part of the economic restoration of Rwanda, with a government regulated industry that guarantees standardized prices. Even still, the majority of Rwandan coffee is controlled by just two multi-national companies, and most of the money ends up leaving the country. Baho differs from the neoliberal imperialist norm in a very material way - revenue from coffee stays in Rwanda. We love the direction the Baho / Sundog projects are headed in and are so honored to roast these coffees.

Quick tips:

To maximize the vibrancy of this coffee, try to keep brew times a bit shorter than some of our other coffees.

process details
Cherries are sorted under shade to remove visible defects before multiple rounds of floating. The denser coffee is packed into sealed plastic bags, placed in the shade and fermented for 18 hours in a low oxygen environment. The cherries are then spread onto raised beds in a single layer, turned and shaded to maintain an ideal bed temperature. Total drying time is 65 days.
