This coffee comes from the Huye region in Rwanda, Africa, where the bourbon coffee trees grow at 1850m above sea level. An unusual, natural bourbon from Rwanda, the espresso is wonderfully sweet, reminding us of fudgy toffee, sweet blueberry jam and dried fig.

This coffee is a special one that you get to see in two different lights, as we roasted the lot from the Simbi Washing Station in Rwanda as both a filter and an espresso roast. Try them both!

At 19grams we've been working with the Simbi Washing Station for many years. 
It was founded in 2013 by Abdul Rudahunga, enabling farmers in the vicinity of the Huye region to process their coffee. Almost 1,500 small farms deliver their coffee to the Simbi Station, which employs around 80 people during the main harvest season. There is space for 300 tonnes of coffee cherries, which are processed with the help of different methods. From fully washed beans to sun-dried natural coffee cherries, anything is possible.
Thanks to its experimental and careful processing, the Simbi Station produces coffees with exceptional quality. Simbi's coffees have been nominated for the Cup of Excellence several times.


Coffee from Rwanda

Known as the 'land of a thousand hills', Rwanda offers the perfect climatic conditions for bloody good coffee. Rwanda was also the only African country honored to host the 'Cup of Excellence' competition. Beginning with a rich body through fruity and floral flavors to a creamy caramel aftertaste, Rwandan coffees possess a very complex flavor profile.

Bloody Good Espresso

Specialty Coffee und Vollautomaten gehen nicht zusammen? Wir finden, das stimmt nicht. Wir haben in den letzten Jahren eine kontinuierliche Leistungssteigerung bei Vollautomaten gesehen, und uns entschieden, die Herausforderung anzunehmen: wir haben einen richtig guten Specialty Espresso für Vollautomaten entwickelt. Korrekt eingestellt ist der Vollautomat ist eine zuverlässige und konsistente Zubereitungsmethode. Für die kurze Kontaktzeit von Wasser und Kaffeepulver eignen sich hellere Espressoröstungen - wie sie im Specialty Coffee üblich sind - nicht. Mit einer klassischen, dunkleren Röstung - wie dieser hier - kannst du die volle Aromenvielfalt genießen!
