Producing some of the best coffees Rwanda has to offer, Muzo station is possibly the jewel in the crown for Baho. Emmanuel Rusatira purchased the station in 2018 but has been working with the co-op for over 8 years, stepping in to lease the station after the cooperative experienced financial difficulties in 2014. Even after winning the cup of excellence that year.

This year, by separating the smaller screen-size beans from top lots and then processing them using his perfected anaerobic natural technique, Emma has created something pretty special for us. This is a true value-added lot, achieved through partnership, vision, and seemingly endless WhatsApp/Skype communication.

Coffee FAQ

Does your coffee come as whole bean or ground?

We only sell whole bean coffee. This is to ensure you make the best cup possible and a big part of that is grinding the coffee just before using it.

If you're in need of a grinder, head to our brewing store.

What's the difference between espresso and filter roast?

We profile most of our coffees for both espresso and filter. In basic terms, espresso coffee is often more developed and slightly darker than a filter roast. This varies with each coffee and in general we roast our coffee to what is considered a light/modern profile. Which one is best for you depends on your intended brewing method.

You can search by brew type on our shop.

Is your coffee roasted to order?

We roast multiple times throughout the week and dispatch online orders twice per week (at minimum). Due to the way we roast coffee, we recommend a minimum rest period of 10 days before brewing.
