Rwanda: Coko Peaberry

Situated in the Northern Providence in the highest parts of the Gakenke District lies the Coko washing station run by a women-owned co-operative.

They use a Penagos washer which uses far less water than the traditional three disk pulpers used in Rwanda. This revolutionary processing allows them to house their co-operative on a site with very little water resources. The water used is mountain water. All the coffee here is hand picked, depulped, dry fermented for 12 hours and then wet fermented for 18 hours. The coffee is first shade dried and then sun dried on raised beds along the steep mountain slopes between 7215-7545 feet.

 

Notes of: Golden raisin, brown sugar, and grape.
