Along with Burundi, Rwanda has been a popular choice for our clients over the last decade.

We source this delightful micro lot from a Northern Province washing station in Rwanda, home to some of the best Rwandan coffees.

A classic washed Bourbon varietal with spectacular sweetness and a wonderfully rich, velvety body.

What we love most about this coffee is sweet mandarin acidity, dark chocolate, almond buttery body and that super-rich toffee finish.

A coffee to drink all day, every day.

It is delightfully rewarding, showcasing some of Africa's best.

The balanced and juicy finish will delight.

Easily one of the most versatile coffees in our broad portfolio.

Able to span most brew methods and suit black or white beverages.

Brew recipes are a guide only

Tips - Like most African coffee, Rwanda is grown at higher altitudes and prepared using washed processing.
As a hard, dense bean, you will be best served with a finer grind and high dose levels to ensure there is plenty of resistance to extract all the juicy and delicious coffee oils.
In milk or dairy alternatives, this Rwandan is super-punchy, rich and rewarding, with plenty of flavor and sweet acidity.

How we roast your coffees

light, medium or dark

Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

did you know about

Ground coffee

Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.

    Great for Moka pot

    Really, really nice. On the darker side of medium with a strong citrus start with a lasting mellow finish. Just don’t grind too fine.

    Very enjoyable.

    Tried it on recommendation of a work colleague. So glad as it runs circles around the other brand we had been buying.
