Kilimbi natural is a firm favourite among the team, its quintessential orange-y aroma fills the roastery and has everyone licking their lips in anticipation!

Cherry is brought to Kilimbi from the surrounding hills either on foot or on the lake, transported on wooden boats sometimes in torrential rain - as we experienced on our trip in May! The cherries are hand sorted and floated to remove any under or over ripes before being laid on the raised drying beds for a period of 30 + days to dry. Covered during the night and rotated by hand multiple times a day it is a labour intensive method of processing, but it is undoubtedly worth it.

Each year our commitment to Kilimbi grows and we are so excited for the future as we embark on a very exciting project…in Rwanda!

Coffees from Kilimbi are dear to our hearts, they are some of the best processed lots we receive each season and have been improving year on year. We started buying the natural lot three seasons ago, its silky orange-dominating profile blew us away and we knew then that we'd be buying it again. Fast forward three years and we are now buying the full spectrum of lots coming out of the Kilimbi washing station, all with the similar thread of orange running through them but totally unique in their own right.

We recently had the pleasure of visiting Rwanda with Raw Material and Muraho, the company who owns and operates the washing stations from which Raw Material source their Rwandan lots. We spent a week exploring Kigali (Rwanda's capital) and the coffee producing areas of Gakenke and Nyamasheke, and were quite simply blown away by the welcome we received throughout the trip. A welcome party consisting of drumming, singing and dancing was the norm, so naturally we dropped our bags and put our dancing shoes on - it would have been rude not to!

Sharing this experience with the people who produce our coffee is something very special and will not be forgotten, the country and its people are full of life and music and it permeates everything they do, especially their coffee, and we are convinced it is evident in the cup.

We have not only returned with a fresh and vigorous love for Rwanda but a whole bunch of tasty samples, some of which are new to us, which we're really excited to taste and share with you all.
