Single origin coffee, Gisuma, Rwanda (250g)

£7.50 each
From Climpson & Sons

£7.50

Recommended by Climpson & Sons!

Tasting note: Red grapes, rhubarb, juicy mouthfeel

Rwanda is blessed with ideal coffee growing conditions that include high altitude, regular rainfall, volcanic soils with good organic structure and an abundance of Bourbon. The vast majority of Rwandan coffee is produced by smallholders of which there are thought to be around half a million with parcels of land often not much larger than just one hectare per family. Coffee is grown in most parts of the country, with particularly large concentrations along Lake Kivu and in the southern province. Rwandan smallholders organise themselves into cooperatives and share the services of centralised wet-mills – or washing stations as they are known locally. Flowering takes place between September and October and the harvest runs from March to July with shipments starting in late May early June. All of our selected coffees have been supported by the NGO Technoserve, whose mission is to empower people in the developing world to build businesses that break the cycle of poverty. In coffee this is achieved by improving the quantity and quality of coffee they produce.

The Fields is adventurous. It is an explosion of ideas expressive of a journey, showcasing our provenance and that of the coffee. We want to tell a story with the Fields, which will change as new and exciting coffees are discovered. We want to share with you our favourite single origin espresso of the moment:

THE FIELDS V8: EuReko, from roast dates: 2nd Jan 2015.

The Fields has gone solo as a single origin espresso, and this time we have the Ethiopian Reko, best served as espresso.

Reko, Ethiopia

Name: Reko Washing Station Coffee type: washed Yirgacheffe Varieties: mixed Heirloom, Kurume Certification: none Location: Kochere, Yirgacheffe Altitude: 1850 - 2100 masl Soil type: Fertile, red brown, loamy soil Average rainfall:1800-2000mm

Reko washing station

In December 2013, during a blind cupping, our friends at Trabocca found this washed Yirgacheffe from Reko washing station. Reko is a small washing station in the Kochere region that was unknown to us at the time - the coffee stood out because of its pronounced aroma of peach, mango and other stone-fruits.

Reko washing station started production in 2001 and is located in Kochere, Yirgacheffe at an altitude of around 1850-2100 meters. During harvest, which normally takes place between late October and mid-January, about 850 farmers bring their red cherries to the washing station.

The washed coffees are first washed with water from a nearby river, after which they are pulped by an old Agard pulping-machine. The mucilage is removed by traditional fermentation, which lasts 36-48 hours depending on the weather conditions. The coffee is then dried on raised African beds (over 120 beds are present at the washing station) for 10-12 days.

The Knots Family Yirgacheffe was such a great coffee last season we bought some more again this year. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is one of the classic and most sought after coffees in the world. What is so interesting about it is that one coffee can be quite different from the next. This is because it is a mixed heirloom variety – meaning the coffee is a mix of naturally occurring, well adapted coffee strains grown in the Yirgacheffe region, and which result in a varied outcome in the cup.

Tasting notes: The flavour profile that is almost Earl Grey tea-like in aroma and initial taste. Caramel mouthfeel, mandarin, jasmine finish.
Altitude: 1900 masl

Variety: Mixed Heirloom

Processing: Washed

Region: Gedebe, Yirgacheffe

Farmers: 950 Farmers

Trees: Average 3000 trees per member

The Knots Family Farm washing station is located about 50 kilometres from Yirgacheffe town, in the Gedebe region of Ethiopia. All producers are family members that live in the area, each with approximately two hectares of land and average 3000 trees.

The washing station is located in a valley, creating a unique microclimate to grow coffee. All of the picked cherries are processed at the Knot's Family station. Before pulping there is a selection procedure to ensure that only the red cherries will be processed. The pulper is a an Agared machine that has no mucilage remover. So, after pulping the cherries, the beans are fermented between 36 and 48 hours. After that, they are washed.

Wastewater is deposted in a lagoon. The wet beans in parchment are put on drying beds between 10 and 12 days. At the station there are 85 raised beds, constructed of wood, mesh wire, jute bags and shade nets. It is essential that the air circulates through the drying cherries to optimise the drying process. This process takes about 15-20 days depending on the weather conditions. In general, the temperatures during the day are 25 degrees celcius and 18 degrees overnight. When the coffee beans have reached a moisture percentage of 11.5-12% they are stored at a local warehouse before being transported to Addis Ababa.
