Here's how we brewed this sweet, clean cup from a stellar washing station, roasted by Cleveland’s by Duck-Rabbit Coffee.

The Tumba washing station in Rwanda's mountainous Rulindo district came under new direction a few years ago by Venustre Mugraneza: a local teacher who has been systematically improving the mill to much acclaim. His quality control is evident in this cup, allowing the special terroir to shine through. We tasted Earl Grey tea, sweet lemon, honey roundness, a limelike acidity, and a tealike body.

Brew Recipe for duck-rabbit Rwanda Tumba

Using Stagg X Dripper


17g of Rwanda Tumba

285g of water



1. Measure and grind coffee at a medium-coarse setting

Measure out 17g of coffee beans and grind them on a medium setting. We used setting 5.2 on Ode with SSP Burr / 4.2 on Ode with Gen 2 Burrs, which is about 3.2 on Ode with Gen 1 Burrs. Suggested setting on Opus is between 5 and 6- and note that the inner ring was set to +0 at 5 for us!

2. Heat water and rinse the filter

Heat water to 205°F and rinse your filter before putting your coffee grounds in.

3. Pour 34g water for the bloom 

Fully saturate your coffee grounds with 34g of water, and allow 30 seconds for the bloom.

4. Continue pouring in three stages

After the bloom, pour to 200g; then when the water is approximately 0.5 in above the bed of grounds, agitate with 5 gentle swirls, then pour to 285g. The total brew time varies, but we’re aiming for between 2:30 - 3:15 minutes.

5. Decant into your favorite mug and enjoy!

Look out for the incredible flavors of black tea, lemon, grapefruit, red currant
