About this Coffee
The Shyira washing station was born in January 2017. the “Little Baby” Shyira is the smallest of all washing stations, managed by Evariste Hagumimana. however it is the highest located known in Rwanda sitting at 1850 MASL. The weather conditions, soil type and its high altitude lands makes this coffee washing station an ideal setting for high-quality coffee processing and production.
The Muraho Trading Company describes this washing station as follows:
“Following the success of our coffee washing stations in Nyamasheke District in our first year, we wanted to expand our regional flavour profiles we had to offer and look for a truly unique area of Rwanda. We set out to look for an area that not only has tremendous potential in producing high quality coffee but where we could make a bigger impact through specialty coffee. We went on to build Shyira CWS with the belief of making a positive influence in the area and producing a truly unique style and taste of coffee that differs from all other Rwandan coffees”.
“Our Little Baby Shyira is the smallest of all our CWS, however it is the highest located known in Rwanda sitting at 1850 MASL. Shyira is an hour drive up the hills from the township of Musanze, Ruhengeri. The weather conditions, soil type and its high-altitude lands makes this CWS an ideal setting for high-quality coffee processing and production. On the drive up to the CWS, when you reach on top of the Shyira hills, you will be met with a view that will take your breath away. The chain of volcanoes in between the beautiful beasts of Rwanda’s Mountain Gorillas, to the waterfalls of the wonderful Gicice river. As if that is not enough, combined with the valley full of white sands, fog covering hills and good weather makes Shyira truly unique and one of a kind. It is often debated between our families and guests which of the three is more beautiful between Shyira, Kilimbi and Gisheke. Let’s just say it is a very close battle!”
