Shyira from Rwanda

We have really enjoyed roasting, after alluding us for last two months it is BACK

Our regulars at cafe and on our website have been eagerly waiting for this amazing Red Bourbon from Shyira washing station in Virunga Mountains, home of great Silverback Gorillas. After cupping and brewing with various methods including espresso, this one remains Neeraj’s favourite “This is one of the most delicious and balanced coffees I have ever tasted, let’s get it”. Despite the hurdles of sourcing, trading, higher prices, freight charges and heavy custom duties we decided to bring it over and offer it to you. It’s a melody of stone fruits and berries with sweetness and aroma of fresh jaggery with a floral note. It has a balanced body with a clean sweet finish; roasted to be enjoyed both on filter and espresso.

Located in Nyabihu District in North Western Region of Rwanda, Shyira washing station is managed by Josue Dusengiyumva. This is MTCo.’s smallest washing station and sources coffee from the highest altitudes (1800 – 2200 MASL) out of their 5 stations, which explain its uniqueness amongst the rest of the produce. Shyira only has 1 full time staff and 42 casual workers during peak season.
