Features of cultivation Rwandan coffee beans
In Rwanda, coffee has been cultivated since the beginning of the XXth century and now it is among TOP-10 coffee-producing countries in Africa. In the last decade, Rwanda coffee beans increasingly enjoy popularity and recognition all over the world. They are famous for a silky, creamy body with a super sweet berry profile with sparkling phosphoric acidity.
There are nearly 450 000 farms growing coffee at altitudes over 1200 m.a.s.l. mostly in the regions of Gakenke, Rutsiro, Karongi, Nyamasheke, Nyagatare, Kamonyi, Kayonza, Ngoma, Kirehe, Nyamagabe and Huye. Due to such height, Rwandan beans are rather dense. Up to 95% of the local coffee is Bourbon with a small percentage of Caturra and Catuai. Besides, there is an endemic variety introduced in Rwanda – Coffea arabica var. Mayaguez. The coffee is harvested 2 times a year: with the main crop from March to June and a fly harvest in September-November.

What Rwanda green coffee do we offer?
Akagera Coffee project (ACP) is a Social Private Enterprise in Kayonza District in Eastern Rwanda. It was founded in 2016 and deals with growing and producing quality coffee with high involvement in social activities. They work with 1150 local farmers that grow coffee at small family estates (1-2 ha) at altitudes from 1450 - 2400 m.a.s.l. All the beans are Rainforest Alliance certified and grown organic with a cupping score between 85 to 94 points. Harvested cherries are processed at Akagera’s Kayonza Washing Station. In the offer of ACP, there are Rwandan green coffee of different fermentations including fully washed greens in all screen sizes, honeys and naturals. Most of the coffee they have is BM 139 – Bourbon Mayaguez – a vigorous and highly productive variety with very good cup quality. Besides, they have also started to grow RAB C15 which has shown even bigger resistance to diseases.
ACP has tremendously impacted the local communities through youth and women employments, contribution to farmer’s income and community involvement through social and economic projects such as teaching different agri-businesses and pre - school for farmer’s children. Besides, they provide more than 100,000 new coffee seedlings to growers every year. That allows to involve more farmers and increase the yield every season.
