FULL DESCRIPTION

Farmer:Emmanuele Rutsatira is the owner of Baho Coffee, a family-run business; Emmanuele has a lot of experience in the sector, as he previously worked for 15 years for a coffee exporting group in Rwanda. In 2016 he started his project, Emmanuele's goal was to find washing stations in different areas of Rwanda to offer the different profiles produced at the origin. Baho Coffee currently has 12 washing stations across the country where it processes cherries to ensure the quality of its products. The name "Baho" comes from an expression meaning "to have life, to be strong and to overcome adversity". Emmanuele is reflected in this expression because, after many efforts, he managed to make his family progress and today he is an entrepreneur who works alongside coffee farmers to empower them and improve day after day.
Baho Coffe is a family-run business and Emmanuel works with over 16,000 coffee farmers and owns 12 washing stations in Rwanda where he receives coffee cherries from smallholder farmers and cooperatives and processes them into ready-to-use green coffee. export.

Process: The coffee cherries are harvested by hand and selected in tanks to separate those of higher quality and ripeness, furthermore this step ensures that the bacteria and enzymes on the surface of the peel are not aggressive the next time it is dried on raised beds. When drying the drupes, an opaque material is used that retains moisture. The process alternates open and closed phases. When the coffee is opened and distributed evenly, normal surface drying occurs. Also, periodically, the coffee is covered very well with material, as in a sleeping bag. This technique significantly increases fermentation and allows the high density of the grain to be maintained; the fruity and vinous notes.

How to choose:

NITROGEN AND VACUUM
Our packages are all packaged in a protected atmosphere (first under vacuum and then we insert nitrogen), using this particular technology which eliminates oxygen in the package, the coffee remains fresh for up to 3 months after roasting.
ROASTING

We roast in two different ways, dividing into two main groups, based on the type of extraction:

  • Light: suitable for Filtro/Aeropress type extractions, or for those looking for a coffee with a note of strong acidity and many aromas.
  • Medium: suitable for Espresso/Moka extractions, or for those who want a coffee with a much more intense flavor and a hint of bitterness.

GRINDING

There are dozens of different grindings, it can be said that each machine or equipment requires a specific grinding.

With us you can choose to buy ground coffee for Moka or Filter.

We have tried to summarize them as follows:

  • Jug/Cezve:
  • Espresso:
  • Moka:
  • V60 Filter:
  • Chemex:
  • French Press/Infusore:

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Coffee has a limited shelf life when we talk about quality. Even if up to 24 months can be written on the label, generally high quality coffee has lost most of its flavor and aroma in a few months. We recommend drinking it between 10 days and 60 days after the roasting date (provided the bag has never been opened). When the bag is opened, the quality of the coffee always deteriorates rapidly and aromas and flavor are lost within a few days. Unfortunately, the roasting date is not always written, especially by larger companies. On our packages you will find it clearly written on the back.

P.S. our bags are all vacuum packaged with added nitrogen, which extends the potential shelf life of the product.

How to do:

ESPRESSO

Espresso requires some precision rules:

  • Quality coffee
  • Recommended roasting within 30-40 days
  • Fine grinding
  • Water temperature around 90-92°
  • A single dose of 8-9g (double dose of 15-17g)
  • Extraction time approximately 25 seconds

The use of quality espresso machines (range from €600 and up) can ensure a better result.
Preferably are machines that also have a coffee grinder to grind "fresh" coffee

MOKA

The Moka requires a little attention:

  • Use filtered or bottled water (NO TAP)
  • Recommended roasting within 30-40 days
  • Medium-fine grinding
  • Fill the boiler with water without exceeding the valve
  • Place the ground coffee into the filter without pressing or making any bumps, simply level it at the edge
  • Place over medium heat
  • Wait for the liquid to rise through the chimney, without letting it gurgle (TURN OFF AS SOON AS THE FLOW OF COFFEE BEGINS TO GO FAST AND COLOURLESS)
  • Mix before serving

The Moka should only be washed with water and any neutral detergents (taking care to rinse carefully with water), never in the dishwasher or with abrasive sponges.

FILTER V60/CHEMEX

Filter or Chemex coffee requires precision in times and weights, some advice:

  • Quality coffee
  • Recommended roasting within 20 days
  • Medium grind (medium-coarse for Chemex)
  • Filtered or bottled water
  • Water temperature of approximately 90-94° depending on the coffee used (generally those washed at higher temperatures)
  • Approximately 15g of ground coffee for every 250g of water (Chemex at least 30g per 500g of water)
  • Pre-infuse for 30-40 seconds by pouring hot water for double the weight of coffee used
  • Pour the water in two or three steps as desired with a rotating direction, being careful not to create too much turbulence
  • Contact/percolation time approximately 3 minutes (4-5 for Chemex)

A light roast is generally recommended for filter systems
