Detour Coffee - Humure Remera Hill, Rwanda

Detour Coffee - Humure Remera Hill, Rwanda


How do we feel about this coffee?
It feels like a sweet, juicy mandarin in your lunch, a fresh slice of lemon and a drop of honey in your orange pekoe tea, and eating an orange Jolly Rancher while paddle boarding on the lake.

Coffee Story
After 15 years of working as a coffee producer, Emmanual Rusatira and his family decided to build their washing stations in East Africa with a commitment to quality, traceability and sustainability. The Humure station, named after the highest hill in the area, was built in 2017 and is the largest in the Baho Coffee Network, which collects coffee cherry from over 1500 farmers in the surrounding area and employs over 200 people during the peak of the season. As with all his mills, Emmanuel pays farmers prices in cherry that can be up to 80% over the national farmgate price set in Rwanda to incentivize producers to choose this station. This specific lot is a Red Bourbon variety grown by Augustin Benda and processed at the Humure Washing Station in the Remera Sector, Gatsibo District, Eastern Province of Rwanda. Augustin Benda and his family own and operate a 4-hectare farm, which is about ten times the size of the farms operated by most smallholders in the country and has the potential to produce around 80 exportable bags per year.
