Rwanda, Nyabihu

Today Rwanda is Africa’s ninth largest Arabica coffee producer with about 450,000 small holding farms, averaging less than 1 hectare in size (approximately 165 trees coffee trees per farmer) and totaling 28,000 hectares of coffee cultivation. 90% of the population is involved in agriculture. Rwanda is spectacularly beautiful and known as the land of a thousand hills, beautiful freshwater lakes and the evocative home of the Gorillas. It is land locked and shares its borders with Tanzania, Burundi, Dominican Republic of Congo and Uganda. Rwanda is also very environmentally conscious; it is proudly the cleanest African country with a total ban on single-use plastic bags and the last Saturday of each month is dedicated by all Rwandans as a community cleanup day.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Coffee is thought to have been introduced in the early 1900s by German missionaries. Most Rwandan beans are either Bourbon or a derivative of Bourbon. Generally washed Rwandan beans present with beautiful sweet full bodies, they are fruity – but more like dates, and have a very gentle acidity.
