This Red Bourbon comes from Buf Cafe's Nyarusiza washing station, run by Epiphanie Mukashyaka in the south of Rwanda.

Buf Café owns a number of coffee washing stations as well as its own coffee trees, and buys coffee cherries from as many as 264 surrounding smallholder farmers and three local cooperatives. Buf has very strong links with the local communities that supply it, providing jobs for 116 at Nyarusiza during peak harvest (May - June/July) and 9 permanent positions. A further 127 people are employed at Remera during harvest, with 10 permanent positions.

It has been really exciting to see the quality of Rwandan coffee improve year after year, and this coffee is a prime example.
