When faced with challenges in exporting coffee, relying on trusted local organizations at origin becomes crucial. Often comprising producers or community bodies, these groups play a pivotal role in facilitating the export process, especially in cases where direct purchase from producers is not feasible. In these instances, we must always choose wisely, supporting companies that share our core values by reinvesting in the community where the coffee has grown.

In the selection process, requesting sample materials during harvest time allows us to gauge the coffee’s quality and anticipate what our customers will enjoy. It is best practice (and our strict protocol) to implement blind cupping, comparing multiple coffees side by side from the same region or country, and of a similar quality standard. This method of evaluation, involving detailed notes and group discussions, helps in selecting the finest coffees from various regions and quality standards, sourced from trusted producers or export partners.

This year, when it came time to select something delicious from Rwanda, we discovered this lot from the Mushonyi Washing Station, standing out with its softly spiced flavors, notes of rich cooked fruit, and snappy citric acid. We were pleasantly surprised when the coffee selected as the sweetest, cleanest, most delicious coffee on the cupping table also represented a local tree rejuvenation initiative created by our Rwandan export partner RwaCof. You can read more about it here! For us, it was a no-brainer - the most delicious coffee that gives back to the producers is always a win-win.
