Rwanda Maraba Sovu | Lemon Sorbet
This 1,200kg micro-lot was produced by 48 smallholder coffee producers, who farm in the hills surrounding Sovu washing station, located in the Huye Sector of Huye District, in Rwanda’s Southern Province. The farmers are members of Nyakagezi Farmers’ Group, which is a smaller association within the Abahuzamugambi Ba Kawa Maraba Cooperative (or ‘Maraba’), who own and manage Sovu along with three other washing stations.
The farmers who make up the Nyakagezi group come from a nearby village called Nyarunazi. Recently they banded together and made the decision to process and market their coffees separately as a smaller, more selected lot. The group also provide each other with invaluable support, by sharing resources and labour during the busy harvest period.
In the cup you will be surprised by the fantastic lemon sorbet aroma, with notes of lilac and vanilla and a white chocolate finishing.
