Za & Klo Torréfactrices

Station Akagera

$22.00

Our natural coffee from Rwanda is in Klo's collection with its notes of rhubarb, peach and chocolate. 

It is part of the initiative of Baho Coffee, a company that includes several washing stations throughout Rwanda, and whose owner, Emmanuel Rusatira, is greatly involved in traceability in collaboration with the importer Semilla. 

This coffee is the result of the work of 5 producers who combined their harvests before sending them to the Akagera washing station. In this project, a particular effort is dedicated to traceability which is often difficult to establish when small productions are sent to washing stations, mixed in huge batches and processed together, as in the case of Rwanda. 

A superb coffee to discover! 

And a little reminder… why is traceability so important? Here are 3 of the many reasons that particularly resonate with us: 

  • It encourages roasters to renew their commitment year after year with the same producers, thus ensuring them a stable income over time.  
  • It encourages producers who see their work valued by buyers and is therefore a source of motivation. 
  • It allows buyers (roasters and consumers) to recognize the work of the producers at the origin.
