Rwanda is Africa’s 9th largest Arabica coffee producer with approximately 450,000 small farms that are on average less than one hectare (about 165 coffee trees per coffee farmer) and a total of about 28,000 hectares of coffee growing.
Rwandan coffee is silky, has a creamy nutty body. The aroma makes a lemon and orange blossom conjecture with floral nuts, complemented by sweet citrus properties and a touch of caramel in the aftertaste.
