The majority of coffee in Rwanda can only be traced back to the washing station. Farmers produce small amounts as a cash-crop. These are blended together to form larger lots that are processed and sold under the name of the washing station. Minani Anastase's coffee is special, too good to be lost in a blend of other lots, his coffee production is just big enough to be kept separate at the washing station, and to preserve traceability back to him, and his farm.

The area surrounding Ruli - where Minani's coffee is from - has mineral-rich soil and a lush environment that is well suited to speciality coffee production. Typically, farms are situated between 1,800 to 2,100 meters above sea level. Coffee is grown as a cash crop, alongside subsistence food crops like maize, beans and sorghum and generally livestock like goats and chickens.

This is the third consecutive year we've worked with Minani Anastase, his coffee is crisp, bright and always highly anticipated.


Suitable for espresso and filter brewing. Best served black. Enjoy within four weeks of roast date.
