Mahembe washing station was built by Justin Musabyiama on his father’s coffee plantation. He farms 8ha of his own coffee and buys cherries from the surrounding smallholders. Justin is in charge of operations including working to improve quality, as well as making organic fertiliser from the coffee pulp. Rwandan coffees differ from most East Africa coffees, here that bright rhubarb acidity is partnered with a chocolatey richness more common in Central/South America. Works beautifully as both espresso and filter.
