Lake Kivu, Rwanda
🍯 Rich Caramel, 🍋 Citrus, 🫖 Black Tea
Situated on the rolling hills that flank Lake Kivu, Rwamatamu Coffee ltd is a family business owned and operated by Mukantwaza Laetitia and Rutaganda Gaston (pictured below), who have been in the coffee sector for 13+ years. They founded Rwamatamu in 2015 aiming to create a business that can contribute to fighting poverty in their rural communities through harvesting high quality coffee.
Their region provides a tropical highland climate with an average temperature of 14 to 24c and regular rainfall, with the farm positioned between 1600 to 2000 meters altitude, on rich volcanic soil. This creates perfect conditions for arabica coffee to flourish and results in a dense, hard bean with superior coffee flavour.
Coffee from Rwamatamu is fully washed with spring water, sun dried and handpicked to a high standard. Currently they are in the process of gaining their organic and fair-trade certifications. They work to have a positive social and economic impact on farmer communities, focusing on women in particular, who make up 80% of their workforce.
