High in the hills of the Nyabihu District, near the famous Virunga Volcanoes National Park, is the Muraho Trading Company’s Shyira coffee washing station.
Muraho Trading Company also own Kilimbi and Muraho, where some of our favourite Rwandan lots in recent years have come from. Shyira is the smallest of the washing stations. Its small scale operation allows the team to focus on producing microlots of the highest quality.
You may have noticed that we have stopped labelling some coffees as “Filter Roast Profile”. We felt that our previous labelling of microlots did not do justice to our coffees and what we think they are capable of. We want you to feel free to use the coffee any way you like. Read more here.
