Mahembe is a privately owned washing station, owned by Justin Musabyiama who is also growing his own coffee trees. Justin has grown up in the local area and after moving away for some time decided to come back home and invest in the community he was from by building a wet mill on his father’s coffee plantation. He has an 8-hectare farm of his own, and is buying cherries from the surrounding smallholders. 

Rwanda is such interesting country. And the coffees are getting more and more balanced every year.

As a general rule you should dial in your espresso using a scale. The first three shots is normally indicating your espresso flow and the appearance of how well your espresso flow/brew. Your first indicator should be the first drop appearing after activating starting the water flow (pump/bottom) I recommend the first drop to appear approx. at 6-8 sec. in that way your espressoshot will brew as long a 26-31 sec. If it appears before 4 sec. I will recommend you should grind finer and visa versa if the first drop appears to late/after 8 sec or more.
