CASA - Espresso Blend - 100% Arabica
Muhura - situated in the Gatsibo District in the Eastern Province of Rwanda - was established in 2010 by a local investment company. However, they struggled with financing and approached Rwanda Trading Company (RTC) to begin providing working capital in 2011. RTC provided capital to the station for two seasons before purchasing the station outright in 2013. Since then, the station has processed on average 900 metric tons of cherry, and RTC's investment has upgraded facilities and improved both processing and management capacity at Muhura.
Most notably, RTC's involvement has seen a considerable improvement in the quality the station produces.
MUHURA NATURAL PROCESS:
Sorting was undertaken upon delivery of cherry to remove underripes, then the cherries were taken straight to raised beds for drying. It takes around 30 days to fully dry the cherries. (On average, 7kgs of freshly harvested cherry will yield 1kg of export quality green coffee).

Sowden SoftBrew™ Tea - model: JAKOB
Designed by Milan-based George Sowden, all-round whizz-kid and good egg, the Jakob teapot combines Italian style with Chinese tradition. The teapot is made from a thick porcelain composite, which gives excellent heat retention, while the hollow-formed handle always remains cool to the touch.
What really sets this brand apart from the competition is the SoftBrew stainless steel filter, which comprises thousands of microscopic holes. This design allows the leaves the space to move freely in the hot water, releasing all their flavour without getting crushed or damaged. The filter is very easy to remove, so that the brew can be separated from the wet tea leaves at the appropriate time to avoid the liquor becoming overly bitter. It's also very easy to clean by simply rinsing it under a tap.
