Rwanda Bean Coffee was founded on the promise to contribute 50% of all our coffee profits to our farmers who grow our coffee -- who in turn are pouring back into the communities where they live. Those contributions have a life-changing impact on the everyday lives of Rwandan farmers and their families. It's coffee that brews hope and brings promise to Rwandan farming communities while transforming your daily cup into one that's both delicious - and impactful.
ABOUT RWANDA BEAN
Harvested By Hand In Rwanda
Rwanda has endless rolling hills dotted with lush trees, home to mountain gorillas, and small coffee farms. High altitude and tropical climate are ideal for growing high-quality coffee. The peak harvest is from May on. The coffee farmers pick the coffee cherries, dry them, and sort them all by hand.
Expertly roasted In Portland, ME
We value freshness, flavor, and aroma above all else. Our beans are expertly roasted in Portland, Maine by Master Roaster John Walsh. Each unique roast brings out the subtle nuances of the nutrient-rich volcanic soil and exquisite flavors only found in the mountains of Rwanda.
giving back 50% of the profits
Rwandan farmers cultivate some of the finest, specialty Bourbon Arabica in the world, and yet they typically receive less than 1% of what consumers pay for a cappuccino. Our company was founded on profit sharing by giving 50% back to the farmers to provide healthcare, education, and infrastructure.
