Despite its diminutive size compared to other East Africa coffee producing countries, Rwanda’s coffee has an important history and terroir entirely unique to the rest of the continent. The snappy acidity, stone fruit flavors, and fragrant herbaceousness found in Rwanda’s coffee is completely unique to bourbon coffees produced anywhere else in the entire world.

Our current offering comes from the Nyamasheke district in Rwanda which is especially gifted in terroir. The cool, humid climates of both Lake Kivu and the Nyungwe Forest National Park keep groundwater abundant throughout the uniquely hilly region. Kivu itself is part of the East African Rift whose consistent drift creates volcanic seepage from the lake’s bottom and enriches the surrounding soils.

Ngoma Coffee Washing Station is located in the southern part of Nyamasheke district, in a striking location right on the shore of Lake Kivu.  Coffees from this region are often jammier and heavier than in the rest of the country.
