About Horsham Coffee Roaster capsules

Our Nespresso compatible coffee capsules contain directly sourced, ethically traded, speciality grade coffees that have been roasted to optimize extraction when brewed using a suitable machine. Buying capsules that contain speciality grade coffee means less bitterness, more sweetness and overall tastier coffee!

Producer Overview

Bwishaza co-operative is located north of Kibuye close to lake Kivu. You can view the exact location via the link to google maps. The co-operative produces a wide range of coffees with their main focus on clean, juicy, bright washed coffees. They also produce a range of natural processed coffees specifically for us.

Harvesting and Processing

Coffee is delivered daily during the harvest period (February to June) by small hold farmers. Usually, they deliver anything between 10 and 100kg depending on the size of their farm.

After delivery coffee is floated in water. Defects tend to float and the good quality cherry will sink. After flotation coffee is pulped to remove the fruit and then fermented dry in tanks for about 12 hrs

After fermentation, the coffee is washed and graded in channels to remove mucilage and to separate coffee by density. It is then moved to raised tables to dry.

Drying takes place in two stages. The first stage is done undercover to allow hand sorting to take place and gentle drying to avoid parchment cracking. After 48hrs of shade drying the coffee is moved to raised tables to dry in the sun until reaching 12% moisture. Each days processing is kept separate to create separated lots.

After the coffee has dried it is stored in a cool stored room and samples are sent away to be roasted, cupped and graded in Rwanda and also sent to us to be sampled. Once we've selected the lots we've like to purchase the coffee will be dry milled. This process involves removing the parchment layer and further sorting to remove defects.

Brewing

Our coffee capsules are compatible with all original Nespresso compatible home machines (excluding commercial models and the Vertuo type.) Water temperature and machine quality makes a big difference to the final product. For best results make sure to fully warm the machine and flush water through before brewing.

Our Nespresso compatible capsules are great brewed at a variety of ratios. For a short, intense coffee we recommend brewing 30-40ml. For a longer coffee, we suggest 60-70ml.
