More About Ngororero
The coffee from Ngororero Central Washing Station (CWS) has been lauded worldwide for its superb quality and taste. In October 2018, Ngororero station received two top prizes in the Ernesto Illy International Coffee Awards. More than 1,500 coffee consumers worldwide loved the coffee above all the other contestants and gave it the “Coffee Lovers Award”. You can find a full recap of the event here.
Festivities aside, Ngororero is a washing station to keep a close eye on. The region where Ngororero is located has a high potential for refined and fruit-forward cupping profiles.
When producers deliver their cherry, the washing station staff selects the best cherries and removes any underripe cherries through flotation. They have sorting tables and trained staff only for this purpose. Given the high number of washing stations, the stations face high competition to receive cherry from the surrounding community. Therefore, they have to accept almost every delivery to prevent the producer to sell elsewhere with less hassle. Hence, an important selection task has to be carried out by the washing station staff in order to produce the best coffees.
The washed process follows the classic method for processing. The cherries pass through the depulper and mucilage removal machine. With part of the mucilage still intact, the coffee undergoes a 12 to 24-hour fermentation in concrete tanks to break down the fruit. Fermentation time depends on weather conditions. Afterwards, the coffee passes through the washing and grading channel. The densest beans remain at the start of the channel. The beans with least density float to the end of the line. This process separates the batch into 5 different parchment grades. Only the heaviest beans are selected for the microlot production.

As a part of our 50/50 program, we have this week donated EUR 1000 to help provide Covid-19 food relief to coffee workers in Rwanda.
We want to sincerely thank you all for buying our coffees through our 50/50 program, making this donation possible!
The coffee world has been heavily affected by Covid-19, creating instability on the market, uncertainty about farmer's salary and their future to live off coffee alone. One of the many countries that have been highly affected during this confinement period is Rwanda, with a huge part of the population losing their daily job, and as a consequence, their daily salary.
We want to stress that the campaign ends today, May 1st. Anyone can donate and If you join the campaign you can help raise money for food to those most in need, mind that 2 dollars can support a family of 6 for a day.
Take care of each other and stay safe out there. The ROAST team ☕️❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
