The purpose of a coffee-washing station—often called a wet mill or factory—is to separate the coffee beans from the coffee cherries.
It’s a vital step and one with an immense impact on the flavour in the cup. But in the case of Musasa, the washing station takes on even greater meaning. For these Rwandan coffee farmers, Musasa is a gathering place, a coming together, a symbol of collaboration and trust.
Farmers are accountable to each other; the quality of the coffee depends on everyone delivering beans of the utmost quality. This dynamic brings people together, helping strengthen the community and build a sustainable future. It is with deep humility and respect that we share their latest offering, bursting with flavours of lemon and black plum.

All Starbucks Reserve™ coffees are roasted with care, at our Starbucks Reserve™ Roastery and Tasting Room in Seattle, to bring out their peak flavour expression. They are available in limited supply in select Starbucks® stores or delivered to you.
