Origin: Rwanda

Rwanda is not only the land of a thousand hills, but also a country rich in flora and fauna and stunning natural beauty in its scenic rolling and breathtaking green savannah. The country hosts some rare species of animals like the silverback mountain gorillas. Despite that sinister past, the horrible genocide that occurred in 1994, which left almost 1 million dead, today it is admirable to see how this small nation has been reborn from the darkest depths, and has enjoyed strong rates of economic growth, creating new business prospects and lifting many people out of poverty to become one of the most prosperous and secure countries in all of Africa. 

Coffee is one of the major export commodities for Rwanda, accounting for more than 40% of the total value of agricultural exports of the country, with approximately 420,000 people are directly or indirectly related to the coffee industry. In addition, coffee also contributes to the reconciliation of the main ethnic groups: Hutus and Tutsis; as we have seen them working together, shoulder to shoulder, to produce more and better coffee.​
