OUR INSPIRATIONExperience Rwanda:
The Place and Its People
From dark roast to light, and chocolaty to citrus flavor notes,
we have offerings for every connoisseur.
Medium Light Roast
This exciting offering is lightly roasted to highlight the delicate sweetness and light floral notes naturally found in coffees from Rwanda. This silky smooth coffee is perfect to enjoy all day.
Medium Dark Roast
Offering a classic character in the cup, experience this coffee with its full, but balanced, body that is accentuated with a touch of bittersweet chocolate. This coffee is great for all-day drinking, or as a refined espresso.
Selected from small producers who exemplify the finest cultivation practices, this coffee is custom roasted to highlight its unique flavor characteristics. Signature Series Coffees are available in limited quantities, and will change throughout the year.
Roasted to bring out a deeper body and to maximize the sweetness and depth of flavor found in the high grown coffees of Rwanda, this coffee will make a perfect well-balanced Espresso, or a bold drip cup.
We believe that good business means doing good for the communities in which we work. Inspired by the spirit of the Rwandan people, I have created these coffees as a way to celebrate and support the coffee farmers of Rwanda. Through direct sourcing, fair trade, ethical practices and environmental stewardship, our dedication to the coffee farmers of Rwanda will allow them to create a sustainable business that can be passed from one generation to the next.
I invite you to taste the spirit and dedication of the coffee farmers of Rwanda.
(Grace Hightower De Niro)
Rwanda is a place where the beautiful tapestry of its people and its land is woven together by determination and hope. It is a place where terraced hills and mountains stretch as far as the eye can see. It is a place where some 11 million individuals, most of them farmers, are working to build a sustainable future. It is from this place that we bring to you a collection of coffees that highlight the extraordinary flavor characteristics found within. These coffees represent the promise of a better future; one that harnesses the inner strength of the Rwandan people and the fertility of the land on which they live.
