A WORLD OF FLAVORS FROM A WORLD APART
Soaring summits, lush valleys, and mysterious bands of mountain gorillas can make the land of a thousand hills feel like a place where time stands still.
But a native crop flourishes in this ancient land, superior to the harvests of any modern grower today.
The region’s rich volcanic soil, equatorial location, and high elevation provide a unique tropical environment that produces one of the richest coffees you can find.
The end result is an exquisite drink that folds a world of flavor into one beautifully balanced blend.
The Coffee That Gives Back
Rwanda Bean Company was created in 2013 with the mission to support the community of coffee farmers who are growing a stronger Rwanda by sharing their harvests and stories with the wider world.
It started with just a couple of pounds of raw beans shipped from Rwanda for a taste-test, and it’s growing to become an amazing community of caring people who believe in giving back.
From now on--as you are about to take that first sip of our yummy coffee in the morning--just stop and pat yourself in the back, first. Remember, every sip you take--helps someone in need.
There is simply no better way to start a day than with a great cup of coffee and a good deed. Every sip matters.
The Coffee That Gives Back To Your Farmer
Our passion for our beans is inspired by those who nurture the growth that brings out their best.
Rwandan farmers cultivate some of the finest, specialty Bourbon Arabica coffees in the world, and yet they typically receive less than 1% of what consumers pay for their average cappuccino.
That is not nearly enough to survive on, that's why we started our 50% For Farmers Program. It has a simple but profound proposition -- give half of all profits back to the people who support the growth of our beans.
We began by investing in crucial farm equipment, and now we're growing to provide much more.
Your daily coffee routine gave health insurance to 180 farmers in 2018.
The Coffee That Gives Back To Your Community
To make this model work, we realized that we had to cut out all middle-men and work directly with the farmers, that's why we buy our green beans directly from our Co-Op partners in Rwanda.
The beans are exported to our warehouse on the coast of Maine where they are small-batch roasted to perfection.
50% of our net profits are then invested back into the Co-Ops by funding community development projects that strengthen these communities from within.
Every cup of Rwanda Bean you enjoy, supports improvements to the infrastructure, education, and health of farmer communities.
