From February through June, hundreds of smallholder coffee farmers bring their crops to Kanzu Washing Station. There, surrounded by the towering mountain peaks of the Crête Congo Nil, 50 local men and women work to transform cherries into specialty coffee. This award-winning wet mill uses traditional techniques, but it’s the people behind the processing who make the difference. Their precision, skill and consistency elevate coffee washing to an art, and their extraordinary offerings have become an important source of livelihood for the community. This sweet, layered lot captures the year’s best cherries, harvested at the very end of coffee season. As you’ll discover, they’re worth the wait.
