An intensely sweet coffee full of flavours, deep and rich notes of dark rum, blood orange and the fruitiness of red grapes.
Complex flavours give you a great tasting filter coffee or a funky and juicy espresso.
Simbi Coffee Washing Station is located in the famous Huye Hills area in the southern province of Rwanda. It was his grandmother's great passion for growing and roasting coffee that inspired founder Abdul Rudahunga to venture into the coffee business and set up the washing station.
Today, the station brings together more than 1,800 local smallholders. They all grow the high-quality Arabica Bourbon variety, which is known for its complex acidity and great balance. After washing, the coffee cherries are carefully sorted by hand and then sun-dried on drying tables for up to 15 days.
The station was established in 2013 and in its first year of operation, it was ranked 9th in the Rwanda Cup of Excellence. Since then, the focus has always been on producing high quality coffee and has repeatedly placed high in the competition, achieving winning coffees in 2015 and 2018 - this achievement reflects the great dedication and diligence of the growers.
