The Lady Nova has been named after the ‘Nova’ coffee processing station and lady run farm from which this coffee was produced. Located 1800 metres above sea level in Northern Rwanda Gicumbi the coffee farms are blessed with high altitudes and flat landscapes that lend themselves to better sunlight exposure each and everyday.
The Nova coffee station is predominantly female run and privately owned by Agnes Mukamushinja, who has transformed the local community with her band of 1219 farmers that are needed each harvesting season. This is a great success story of owners dedicating their lives to produce the best possible coffee whilst supporting the local economy in Rwanda.
Can you taste it?
The Lady Nova is naturally processed with the coffee cherries dried for up to 30 days in the sun to allow for maximum fermentation. This results in an exceptionally fruity coffee bursting with citrus and sugary flavour. Expect tasting notes of grapefruit, honeydew with a milk chocolatey finish.
African coffees and naturally processed are known for their brightness and extremely fruity nature, so they are usually preferred as filter or as long black for espresso based drinks.
We recommend consuming this coffee between weeks 2 to 4 after its roast date, but of course, try it before or after too.
