This Peaberry coffee is produced by the COOCAMU co-op in Rutsiro, Rwanda, just along lake Kivu which separates Rwanda from D.R.Congo. The only access to this area is by taking a 45 minute boat ride across lake Kivu from Kibuye, Rwanda. Before the co-op existed, people would process their coffee at home. They dealt with strangers who would arrive by boat in the middle of the night only to break in and steal their coffee to resell. Now, members store their coffee in a secure warehouse and farmers no longer feel threatened by violence and robbery.
These Rwandan beans are grown at roughly 1600m during the Spring. After they are washed, they are sun-dried on raised beds.
