V60 Recipe | Rwanda Kanya


We love coffees from Rwanda, this one in particular is super aromatic and complex. With this recipe the result is a very sweet and balanced drink, which stands out for its bright and juicy acidity, a silky body and a refreshing aftertaste of lemon, where we find citrus, honey and caramel. When the temperature drops it tastes like a tea with lemon.

The Coffee

The Kanya washing station was built in 2014 by Kanyamibwa Edmond, with the financial help of RTC (Rwanda Trading Company). He had always been interested in coffee and used the station to learn and perfect cherry processing methods. During the following years Kanya grew and began to process high quality coffees. Kanyamibwa used Kanya’s profits to build a second washing station, and in 2017 decided to sell Kanya to RTC so that he could continue to properly manage the operations of his new washing station.
