Roaster's Notes

The African Great Lakes—Victoria, Malawi, and Tanganyika—surround the Rwandan highlands that produce this limited-time offering of beans cultivated by small growers. Ishema Washing Station is the epicenter of the local Direct Trade-funded programs, and is unique in that, in addition to using Direct Trade premiums to improve the quality of local coffee harvests, the station also funds a trade school to provide future economic stability for the community. 

Noted for its fragrant essence reminiscent of coffee blossoms, our limited-time bean is lightly roasted just enough to caramelize the flavor, providing notes of sweet honey. Its name, Imfura, means “the first”—and was inspired by our local partner’s comment: “You were the first born, the first partnership we had. Like children, more can come, but the first one will always be special.”  

If you’re curious about how a change in growing region can affect small-batch, single-source flavors, try tasting this coffee in comparison to our Rwanda Murundo, which was grown at a higher elevation in western Rwanda. We’ve roasted both of our Rwanda offerings in the same manner to allow region differences to shine.
