    About the coffee:

    The Vunga station, located in the Nyabihu region, is one of the smallest that Muraho works with, and only began collaborating with the project in 2017. The cooperative itself was founded in 2009, and has consistently produced very high quality coffees since, even placing in the national finals of the Cup of Excellence in both 2012 and 2014. When Muraho began working with the station, they looked to improve the infrastructure and systems, in order to help the members to maximise both their profit and quality. For instance, new washing channels were built for the 2018 harvest, allowing both more efficiency and more precise sorting during processing. This paid off almost instantly, the first year working together with Muraho was a record year for the station, producing over 200 tonnes of specialty lots. Vunga is unfortunately in an area rather prone to flooding, and was badly affected just last year, with large parts of the station infrastructure destroyed. A crowdfunding effort was set up, supported by the coffee community, meaning that Vunga was able to rebuild and process coffee again in 2020, including this lot. Vunga is known for its very clean washed coffees, with clear citrus notes and floral aromas, closer to an Ethiopian profile than we have previously seen in Rwanda.
