Sweet Breeze Rwanda Sholi Washed
about the farm
The Sholi Cooperative has been in operation for over a decade with nearly half of its members are women producers. These coffees come directly from the plots belonging to the Women’s Association. As a cooperative they are dedicated to improving sustainability socially, economically, and environmentally. In 2016 they received a grant to build a community center and a regional health center. The regional health center has allowed them to treat common diseases and general health of individuals in the community. The health center is hoping to create a nutrition and cooking program to help young children fight malnutrition. In 2016 they planted over 15,000 more coffee trees and in 2017 that number doubled.
Grown at elevations ranging from 1800 to 2000 meters, this washed process single origin from the Sholi Co'Op in Rwanda is round and juicy, with a clean finish and a pop of acidity. Sweet Breeze boasts flavors of peach, green apple, and brown sugar with a strawberry aroma.
For the washed process, fresh cherries are dry fermented for 18-24 hours. From there, they are wet fermented for an additional 24 hours and then de-pulped (fruit removed).
Try it side-by-side with Blush Berry -- the same single origin, but a natural process. Sweet Breeze and Blush Berry work together to create a true tasting journey. Offered individually or as a duo!
