They said it best..

  • "Best coffee on this planet.. Try the dark roast. Well balanced not to dark or chalky. But full of great flavor love it. Parking in the rear and wait until you smell the beans.."
    - Craig L. (YELP )
  • "What a beautiful local business for this community. I enjoyed a fantastic cold brew coffee and delicious gourmet Whoopie Pie for a quick snack."
    - Sean C. (YELP )
  • "Stopped by for what was supposed to be a quick bathroom break but turned into a nice hangout session with friends. Between the iced coffee, kombucha, and a few whoopie pies, the ambiance and food were perfect for a nice break from the long drive. I'd recommend anyone driving by or making their way back from Ft. Williams to make this place a nice coffee break and recharge before hitting the road. From what I gather, all of the things going on with this place also go to a good cause. What more can you ask for. Thanks Rwanda Bean!."

  • "A small producer, making a big impact. Not only is Rwanda producing some of the finest coffee in the world, this small batch producer has an amazing story to tell, and it goes well beyond fair trade even reinvesting in the farmers themselves and their communities. This single origin specialty coffee will get you excited to drink coffee again - maybe even black and unsweetened - so you can truly appreciate these deep flavors showcased in this blend... Think sweet (maybe even hints of Caramel), yet also a little zesty! The blond roast is a perfect blend to start. I am so excited to be able to ship this, as up to now it has only been available in small markets in Maine."

  • "Finally a reflection of myself in a coffee shop! Oh how I love this little gem I think this is my new favorite place! Vegan pastries, amazing combinations of #nitrocoldbrew amazing vegetarian and vegan friendly food options!!! What more can I ask for????? I'm completely smitten! They also in-house the Cape Cod Whoopies (A Maine favorite) and Mark is one of the nicest people you ever want to meet! Every business needs employees like him. So if you happen to be looking for me....more than likely you'll find me in this tranquil space nestled on the sofa with a book or sitting at one of the many bistro tables. This place is HEAVENLY. I'm so glad I discovered it. #coffee #relaxation #sundays #books #readingcorner #rwanda #rwandabeancompany #blueberrylatte #fredgesandwich"

  • "Don't be confused: Rwanda Bean Company and Cape Whoopies are the same. But different. But the same. Housed in an unmistakable dark gray painted brick building on the corners of Cottage and Walnut (off-street parking available in a lot behind the building [off Walnut]), it's essentially a cafe that serves up Rwanda Bean coffee, Cape Whoopie's pies, breakfast sandwiches, and an assortment of fresh baked goods and pastries. The cafe itself is spacious and clean, with plenty of seating including both tables and a hightop bar the length of the room adjacent to a wall of floor to ceiling windows. But lets focus solely on Rwanda Coffee. Because - wow. This might be some of my new favorite iced coffee in Greater Portland. Bourbon barrel aged cold brew?!?!?!?!? AND a dairy alternative available for free in a carafe at the self service counter?!?!?!! AND the prices being totally normal!?!?!?!!? This place is magic (... maybe it's just the Bourbon Arabica beans). My only complaint? They need a larger size iced coffee, because I slurp these bourbon ones down a little too easily! *insert cry laughing emoji here*"

  • "Very good coffee, and nitro cold brew- including one aged in oak- very cool. Excellent staff, nice space with plenty of seats that have room for a laptop or a family. Fast wifi, nice bathrooms. All around a terrific neighborhood coffeeshop for locals and tourists alike. A+."
    - Matt T. (YELP )
  • "Wow! The best coffee that I ever had. Great coffee, overall. Will be a monthly subscriber for this one. I spend my days in front of a computer, and the only way I'm able to do that is having a couple of cups of coffee on a daily basis. Rwanda Bean's Gourmet Ikerekezo is a must try for coffee lovers. Besides this coffee being greater than other coffees I've tried in terms of richness and taste, I like the companies mission to help coffee farmers and communities in Rwanda where their coffee is grown. This makes me drink my cup of coffee guilt-free and knowing that my purchase will affect farmers lives. Try this coffee and you won't be disappointed."
