Sweet Maria's Home Coffee Roasting

Rwanda Butare-Bufcafe Washing Station Improvements
These images show improvements to the washing station (i.e. the wet-processing coffee mill) that our Rwanda Butare Bourbon comes from. Donations and additional funds from better price for the green coffee paid for these improvements, which will them improve the coffee quality, and hence increase the price ... at least in an ideal world. Hey, we live in that world, and are paying above-fair-trade prices for such lots. These were forwarded to me from Tim at Volcafe as part of a report on this project, and we have already arranged for a microlot from this mill for next year.
