Rwanda Cyiya Lot 5 Washed – Filter Roast


RECOMMENDED PREPARATIONS: Filter (V60, Melitta, Kalita, Machines), French Press, AeroPress

Our new fruity filter is the super juicy berry bomb that is Rwanda Cyiya Lot 5. It is produced by smallholder farmers in the hills near Lake Kivu and processed at the washing station in Murondo. In the cup, you can expect some sweet and punchy dark berries and vanilla custard.

And by the way, Cyiya is pronounced “chia” – just like the superfood seeds!
