Nyungwe specialises in producing and promoting the use of organic fertilizers for coffee cultivation and utilising clean water from a nearby spring. Using small stone filters, organic husks and mucilage are removed in a pit. The result is a natural coffee with prominent taste notes of papaya, juicy pineapple and tangy persimmon, with a smooth medium body and lingering zesty aftertaste. Works perfect as an espresso, with milk or a pour over.

Located within the Nyamasheke District's Kagano Sector, Nyungwe Station stands for specialty coffee excellence. Managed by Daniel and owned by RTC, this haven sits at an elevation of 1680 - 1780 meters, spanning 2.5 hectares. Its secluded location marks the gateway to the sprawling Nyungwe Forest, infusing its beans with unique terroir.

Amidst this serene backdrop, farmers tenderly nurture their crops, extending to the forest's edge. All cherries from the sector find their way to this hub of quality. Perched on relatively level ground, the station's facilities blend seamlessly into the landscape, with the nearest village, Tyaso, a distant neighbor.

Since its inception in 2008 and acquisition by RTC in 2012, Nyungwe Station has thrived. Employing six dedicated staff, including two women, and hosting 35 seasonal workers, it's a bustling hive of activity. Yet, despite its ambitions to produce 300 to 350 metric tons annually, the current yield hovers around 200 metric tons, a testament to the challenges of the terrain and the dedication of its 1,047 farmers.

These farmers, spread across the region, traverse varying distances to deliver their harvest, some as close as a third of a kilometer, others trekking four kilometers. Yet, united by their commitment to quality, they participate in the Agronomist Training Program, ensuring the finest cultivation practices.

At Nyungwe, sustainability isn't just a buzzword—it's a way of life. Organic fertilizers enrich the soil, while water, sourced from a pristine spring, is meticulously treated post-pulping. The station's embrace of nature extends to its climate, where cooler nights, courtesy of the neighboring forest, lend a unique complexity to its beans.

But Nyungwe isn't just a coffee station; it's a community hub. Baboons from the nearby forest often mingle with locals, adding a touch of wildlife to daily life. Moreover, with a nursery on-site and plans to distribute 200,000 trees post-harvest, Nyungwe nurtures both coffee and community.

Equipped with state-of-the-art Penagos and Pinhalense Eco-pulpers, Nyungwe ensures precision processing, with honey-dried beans boasting 50% mucilage. With 49 raised beds for meticulous drying, every batch is a testament to craftsmanship.

In the world of specialty coffee, Nyungwe Station isn't just a destination—it's a journey into the heart of Rwandan terroir, where every sip tells a story of dedication, sustainability, and flavor.
