ABOUT THE COFFEE

Obadiah's first ever natural Rwandan lot, produced by smallholders at Muraho Trading Co. Sweet red apples and dates.

A new experience.
This is Obadiah very first time working with a natural Rwandan lot and they are very excited to share it with you.

Their partners, Raw Material, work alongside Muraho Trading Co to help increase the quality of their production, achieve a higher price for the coffee and introduce them to new markets.

This specific lot stood out on the cupping table for its layered, sticky character and red apple sweetness. Obadiah were also thrilled to select a natural Rwandan, having purchased washed Rwandans over the last few years.

The Producer
Located in the Nyamasheke District, the station overlooks Lake Kivu, with almost 40% of the cherries received at Gisheke coming by boat from Mushungwe Island. All of the cherries from the neighbouring islands are delivered by boat to Gisheke, which is only accessible by water.

All cherry is hand-sorted before a pre-pulp float, underripe or damaged cherry is removed, along with any foreign objects. Cherry is then floated in pre-pulping tanks removing any floaters and later pulped. Once the cherry is sorted and cleaned, it is ready to be dried.

The cherries are laid out evenly across raised beds, providing consistent airflow, and height away to prevent moisture and animals coming into contact with the cherry. The cherry is dried for 30 days, turned constantly when the sun is high and covered during the night. Once the cherry has dried, the now dried outer fruit is removed, and the coffee beans are ready to be organised for packing.

ABOUT Obadiah

Obadiah са наши гости отново. Обожаваме опаковката им, а съдържанието не разочарова също.
След като се преместват от Австралия в Шотландия през 2017 г., Сам и Алис Янг създават пекарната за спешълти кафе Obadiah в Единбург. Преди да пристигне от Пърт, Сам е пекар в Seven Seeds, една от емблематичните спешълти кафе пекарни в Австралия, които са основоположници на кафе културата там. Obadiah е библейско теофорично име, което означава „слуга на Бога“ и Сам обяснява, че първоначално е избрано като име за групата, която иска да основе. За съжаление тази група така и не се реализира, но името се запечата в съзнанието му. До момента, в който попада в Единбург и получава възможността да отвори pop up кафене за пет месеца и успява да набере клиентела, която цени високо кафетата, които предлага. Вследствие на този успех, решава да се установи там и да създаде своя собствена пекарна.
