We are excited to bring you our first coffee out of Rwanda. A local teacher in the Tumba area for which the mill is named, took over all aspects of the private processing mill from two owners that had very different ideas about quality. Venustre Mugraneza, the teacher, is esteemed in the local community and has been systematically improving the mill. The best coffee cherries (those that make up this lot) are dried in a special area of raised beds and receive focused handpicking by the farmers. Tumba is situated at 1825 meters in the Rulindo district. This is another beautiful Farm Gate coffee that is good for espresso.
