Rwanda Kilimbi (Filter)

Premium Specialty coffee
(Exclusively in 125g bags)

Kilimbi Coffee Washing Station is built on the shores of Lake Kivu and purchases coffee from approximately 150 families in the area. Once the coffee is delivered to the station it is hand sorted, floated, pulped and then fermented for eight hours. Wet parchment is then run through a serpentine where a moving channel of water allows any floaters and foreign objects to float and be discarded. This is also an important process that separates parchment into density. Submerged gates trap A1 parchment early on in the serpentine, where the A2 parchment is allowed to pass and is caught further down the water channel. After they have all been separated, it is then washed in one final rinse and placed out on pre-drying sorting tables. It is at this point where hand sorters remove any defects including identifying potential potato defects.
