In 2009, Dorman's, a Kenya based coffee exporting company, bought the remote Kanzu washing station in Rwanda. Kanzu is so remote, in fact, that there is no road to the station, and instead, you must drive to the closest town and hike the remainder of the distance. However, Dorman's recognized the incredible quality coming from the station and the smallholder producers contributing to it, and wanted to try to bring it to the global specialty market. 

We've been purchasing coffees from Kanzu for many, many years, and we've always been astonished by how the quality gets better and better each year. There's just something about the character of these coffees that you can't taste anywhere else. They are bright, tart, and incredibly sweet — like drinking a lemon lime soda, or eating a citrus hard candy. The coffee is also incredibly floral and herbaceous, reminding us of a refined and sweet oolong tea.

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?

Yes!

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.
