Rwandan Coffee highlights the lifestyle of a nation. Only around 25% of Rwanda’s 11 million people live in an urban setting. Many instead live in the country, a large percentage of whom work in coffee. Our very own Rwandan Coffee is of excellent quality and has tastes likened to Kenyan Coffees.
It boasts deep notes of berry, citrus fruits, and chocolate with refined acidity. A medium roasted, full-bodied brew consisting of a wonderfully unique flavour, it is no real wonder Rwandan Coffee Beans are one of our most popular choices.
All of our coffees are roasted with the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transfer to roast the coffee beans. The results are unbelievable and Rwandan Coffee is one of our best examples.
Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we don’t settle for second best. And you shouldn’t either, not with our Rwandan Coffee by your side in the morning to get you ready for the day ahead.
Unlike many other Single Origin Coffees, Rwandan Coffee is seldom mass-produced. Rwanda is known as the land of a thousand hills with many of its coffee farmers producing at varying elevations from high above the slopes to deep within the valleys.
Most Rwandan coffee cherries of high quality are picked by hand, with each tree visited three to four times during the season. About 95% of coffee plants in Rwanda are of the high-quality Arabica varietal, Bourbon. Also cultivated are relatively small amounts of the Catuai and Caturra varietals.
While Ethiopia, the “birthplace” of coffee, shares the same continent as Rwanda, separated only by Uganda and Kenya, coffee plants are not strictly native to the country. Coffee trees were first introduced by German missionaries in 1904. Initially, Rwandan Coffee was mostly low-grade produce as dictated by the then government in order to maintain a consistent income. Over the course of time, however, this changed drastically and quality improved greatly. Today, coffee sales have grown to a point where they now represent 60% of Rwanda’s export earnings, with tea sales making up a further 30%.
Choosing The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company supports smallholder farmers across Rwanda and ensures stability for their families. We are proud to buy in Rwandan Coffee from only sustainable sources. Be part of something special today, bolster the growth of Rwanda’s coffee-growing communities and help to maintain their way of life for generations to come. All this and more with our Rwandan Coffee.
