  • Aroma and flavor :

CANTALOUP, VANILLA, ORANGE 🍊

Perched at an altitude of more than 1800m in the heart of the African continent, this Rwandan coffee will clearly take you on a journey with its taste and aroma that is both sweet cantaloupe, sweet vanilla and tangy orange.

In addition, the botanical variety being Bourbon gives structure to the texture, making it a naturally creamy coffee.

And to finish on a high note, this coffee has been washed (after 24-36 hours of fermentation), which does justice to the terroir of Rwanda in a remarkable way, more particularly in the Northern Province, Rulindo district, to the small Kinini village of 48 members.

  • Dreamers

"Kinini" means, literally, "that big thing right here". It is the name of the collaboration of cooperatives that seek to pool their efforts to improve their batches. 85% of members are women. Kinini is also the name of a (coffee) washing station and cooperative located in the town of Kinini, which collects from the neighboring villages of Tumba and Mageragere.

Jacquie and Malcolm started dreaming 10 years ago. They dream of opportunities in coffee. They wanted to find a way to have a generational impact on communities without having to continually fundraise for aid projects. At that time, they knew nothing about coffee, but they knew that the Rwandan government supported a transition to specialty coffee. Malcolm and Jacquie wanted to see how much they could leverage that goodwill to help a community. They spent years seeking advice from experts in the coffee industry and traveled all over Rwanda in search of a community interested in such a business and conducive to growing good coffee.

After countless hours of touring farms with agronomists and soil specialists, they chose an area one hour north of Kigali. This place is not only magnificent for its views, but also for its high altitude which dwarfs even the famous Lake Kivu region. There was only one problem: they didn't grow a lot of coffee there. So they came up with a solution.

What if... they gave farmers coffee to grow?
What if...they gave farmers technical support on how to grow good coffee?
What if.. they gave farmers a washing station to process it?
What if... they gave the farmers a dry mill to process it further?
What if... 10% of the profits were directly allocated to investments in development projects (in education, health, etc.)
What if... they helped organize these farmers so they could manage themselves and eventually run the business without them?

What if... It was a lot of dreams, which met with a lot of doors slamming in your face. The setbacks that would have discouraged the toughest of us didn't deter these two from their goal. After years of lobbying the local government, the Development Bank of Rwanda, the farmers themselves and countless other parties, their project was finally given the green light in 2014.


I'm proud to have got my hands on their excellent quality coffee and help Jacquie and Malcolm achieve their dream.
