Bwenda Washing station was developed by its owner, Bernard Uwitije, in 2018, after spending the two previous years learning how to produce coffees that met a specialty standard.
Bernard's background was as a home producer of coffee, but since honing his skills and focusing on processing methods, he and the team at Bwenda have been able to produce two lots - one of which we are lucky enough to be able to offer here.
This lot is naturally processed, and come from the various farmers who grow their cherries nearby. Bwenda was built to assist these farmers, who were previously relatively isolated. By supporting this station, these farmers will continue to be incentivised to grow the best crops possible, knowing that the processing available to them can allow them to fetch a premium for their cherry.

Notes from the team:
Bwenda has made us all fall in love with Rwandan coffee all over again. Last year's washed lot was one of the best Rwandan coffees we've ever roasted, and we're excited to show off this naturally processed lot to you.
The best bit is that with Bwenda being such a new washing station, your support in buying it means that Bernard will be able to improve the quality of the next crops that come in. Long may it continue!
