Our relationship with Bernice and Luke from Rwamatamu Coffee is our most direct yet - one that started when Bernice was working in our own coffee shop!

At the time, Bernice was studying at Teesside University for a degree in project management, with a view to taking over the family farm once her parents retire. We've been lucky enough to follow her and her husband Luke's journey as they make their dream a reality.

The coffee itself is incredible. With juicy notes of peach and apricot, brown sugar sweetness and a creamy body. Rwanda Rwamatamu is already amongst our favourite washed African coffees to date. There is a bright future ahead for Rwamatamu, and we're looking forward to showcasing it for years to come.

Lake Kivu, Rwanda

With stunning views overlooking Lake Kivu, Rwamatamu is as picturesque as the coffee is tasty. High altitudes of over 2000masl and regular rainfall make this the ideal place for producing bright, washed coffees.

Sweet & Floral

Notes of ripe juicy peach and nectarine are at the forefront of this lot, with floral honey and warming brown sugar in the background. Incredibly well processed, clean and complex.

Washed

Ripe coffee cherries are picked, and sorted to remove any defects. They then pass through a depulper, where the flesh of the cherry is removed, leaving behind a sticky mucilage layer. Next, the beans are fermented, and the mucilage layer breaks down, leaving a clean coffee bean behind. The beans are then carefully dried, resulting in a clean-tasting coffee with natural sweetness and complexity.

Fruity Intensity

Fruity Intensity

With bright juiciness reminiscent of ripe peaches, and the complexity of its floral notes, Rwamatamu has an intense natural sweetness that is delicious as a filter coffee.

REDEFINING DIRECT TRADE

When “responsibly sourced coffee” is part of your mission, the beauty is that it becomes more possible to achieve as time goes on.

We’ve been able to foster some amazing relationships over the last few years, and this is the closest one yet - one that started out in our very own Bedford St. Coffee when Bernice was working as a barista while studying at Teesside University.

Since starting to take over operations back home, we've had hours of fantastic conversation with Bernice and her husband, Luke. We're incredibly fortunate to be able to have such close links to Rwamatamu, and we're excited to continue the meaningful dialogue for years to come.
