KaHaWa, Speciality Coffee

Who we are

KaHaWa, a branch of Ajili Africa Ltd, is a well-known Exporter and Trader of Bourbon Arabica Coffee Green Beans from Rwanda, Africa

Ajili Agro is a conglomerate of cooperatives and coffee washing stations within Rwanda, comprised of four coffee washing stations from the southern and northern side of Rwanda, with the totality of 2,500 farmers.

Since the majority of coffee farmers do not have access to the international market, our main goal is to work closely with farmers within cooperatives by offering them financial literacy, agro-business management, coffee agronomics practices training, programs to increase the yield and keep them operational,  profitable and healthy.

We oversee processing and quality control during the season and provide access to the future market to secure the best prices for farmers.

Processing Method

We are specialized in fully washed coffee beans and below is a walkthrough of the processing from cherries to green beans

 Coffee Washing Station

1. Pick ripe cherries and transport to the mill

2. Pulp (remove) the red cherry skin, leaving two beans encased in sticky parchment

3. Ferment parchment coffee 2-3 days in a tank to loosen the mucilage (fruit residue)

4. Run in a channel with fresh water to wash off mucilage completely

5. Dry parchment coffee to completion (11-12% moisture) in sun (about 6 days) or mechanical dryer (about 2 days)

6. Rest the parchment coffee in a silo or conditioning bin for 1-2 months

Dry Mill (Hulling)

7. Hull the parchment shell from the green bean

8. Fully grade beans on a series of machines by size, shape, density and colour.

Additional to the above, we do cupping tests on daily micro-lots which are blended at the end of the season depending on the client demand.
