COFFEE SOURCED FROM KIVUBELT

Imena

This coffee represents years of work by more than one hundred heroic farmers on the shores of Lake Kivu loosely organized into a collective known as People's Farm. The idea behind Imena, which is the Kinyarwandan word for hero, is that our neighbors are small-scale coffee farmers who grow their coffee in very high and very hilly terrain, places that are accessible only on foot, or perhaps by bicycle or motorbike.  When the cherry is ripe, they hand-pick it and walk with it on their heads to our coffee washing station in Murondo. They do heroic work to provide us with highest quality coffee

Nyaruzina

Nyaruzina is one of our farms directly on the shores of lake Kivu. It is situated on a scenic peninsula on the lake and only accessible by boat. This is a unique coffee in Rwanda because all of the cherries are produced on one farm where we are able to control the growing conditions; inputs, pruning, mulching etc. In this case there is also far more scope for selective picking and sorting to only process the best cherries.

Jarama

Jarama is our largest farm and located a on a few hundred meters higher altitude than our other farms.

This is a unique coffee in Rwanda because all of the cherries are produced on one farm where we are able to control the growing conditions; inputs, pruning, mulching etc. In this case there is also far more scope for selective picking and sorting to only process the best cherries.

Kamajumba

Kmajumba is our second farm directly on the shores of lake Kivu. It is situated  also on a scenic peninsula in the lake. This is a unique coffee in Rwanda because all of the cherries are produced on one farm where we are able to control the growing conditions; inputs, pruning, mulching etc. In this case there is also far more scope for selective picking and sorting to only process the best cherries.

Cyiya

Another example of the qualities a coffee produced by small holders can achieve. The village of Cyiya is high up in the mountains and often only accessible by foot. The farmers walk hours to sell their coffee cherries at our washing station in Murondo, where we can deploy strict quality controls and ensure that this coffee keeps its qualities
