Kanzu washing station is located in the Western Province of Rwanda, overlooking Lake Kivu, which stretches the country's boarder with the Democratic Republic of Congo. Employing 50 men and women each harvest season to process local coffee cherry from community farmers, we've long been fans of the coffees from Kanzu, as they are uniquely fruited, herbal, and sweet. 

In our opinion, the flavors of washed Kanzu are iconic and completely unique. While just as floral and tea-like as many of their counterparts in Ethiopia and Kenya, the coffees from Kanzu possess character of juicy lime candy (think "green flavor" lollipop) that you just don't find anywhere else. It's herbaceous, aromatic, and refreshing (read: you'll definitely want to try this one as an iced coffee.) Grab your bag while it lasts!

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will My Order Ship?

We roast Monday through Friday, and most orders ship the next roast day from when they are placed.

The only exception is any pre-order item, which will ship on the date stated on that item's pre-order page.

Do You Have Recommendations For Brewing?


First, we recommend a brewing ratio of about 1:17. So whatever your dose of coffee is for a brew (we recommend weighing your coffee in grams), multiply that number by 17, and use that weight of water to brew.

Second, always try to grind your coffee fresh, directly before you brew. This will significantly impact the flavor.

Lastly, and maybe most important, always use the highest quality water you can. Filtered is always best. Coffee is 98.5% water, so the water you use makes a huge difference.

Any other questions? Just drop us a line.

Is ReAnimator Coffee Organic/Fair Trade?

While some of our coffees may happen to be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when sourcing coffees, and do not market them as such.

All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the c-market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price.

Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology.
