INTANGO Emmanuel and his team believe in the traditional practices of the previous generations and try to apply their techniques to coffee processing. is is how they started experimenting the now-called “Intango” coffee. Intango is a clay pot in Kinyarwanda, the local language. It has been used for centuries to create a special beer made of bananas. Historically, this beverage was prepared by the kings and given to soldiers as a reward for their achievement and engagement. Over- time, it became a sign of appreciation given to special guests. As his grandparents created beers in Intangos, Emmanuel is now processing coffees in those pots. After being sorted, the coffee cherries are hermetically placed in the clay pots - no water, no chemicals added. They ferment there between 40 and 100 hours, before being rinsed and dried on raised beds to a 12-12,5% moisture rate.
