This premium lot of coffee from the northern province of Gekenke is produced by a group of women that have organized themselves as the Hingakawa Women’s Association. In Kinyarwanda, Hingakawa means “let’s grow coffee”. Cherries are processed the same day they are picked with single-disc pulpers and undergo a 12-24 hour fermentation period. This coffee is hand-sorted throughout the wet and drying process to remove defective beans, resulting in a uniform and clean cup profile. Read the fascinating story behind this coffee on the blog.
MonoOrigine coffees provide an avenue to explore our blends more deeply. Our interest in single origin coffees (mono origine) is as old as the first torrefazione in Perugia - we have been choosing the best single origin varietals to be part of our blends for generations. Each component of our blends is a high-quality coffee that can stand on its own. Our expertise in choosing coffees from all over the world and bringing out their best characteristics - together in a blend - is leveraged with our single-origin offerings.
Just as the soloist is not in competition with the orchestra, single origin offerings are not in competition with blends - they do provide an opportunity to experience coffee on another level and round out our coffee knowledge.
