About Ngara Nyarusiza

Our Head of coffee

Will says:

“I’m a big fan of the complex sweetness of honey and when I taste that same sweetness in coffee I tend to fall in love with it immediately and this coffee really has it. A complex sweetness combined with blackberry flavours and an amazing complex, elegant acidity like you can only get from field ripened fruit. I often put honey with natural yogurt or slightly under ripe berries to balance the taste of them but I am yet to achieve a taste as balanced as you get from this cup. It’s wonderful.”

About the farm

The coffee for this lot is grown on a number of small farms in the Ngara region, about 18km from the Nyarusiza washing station. The producer, Bufcoffee Ltd. is a family known in Rwanda for producing and exporting green coffee beans.

Bufcoffee was founded by Mukashyaka Epiphanie in 2003, nearly ten years after she lost her husband to the genocide in Rwanda. Mukashyaka’s husband had a coffee farm at the time and sold his coffee locally. As a widow with seven children and some knowledge of coffee, Mukashyaka got support from Project to Enhance Agriculture in Rwanda through Linkages (PEARL) and set up Bufcoffee Ltd.

Bufcoffee Ltd. not only produces and exports coffee, it also empowers 4,608 women and coffee farmers social and economically. Through training and by sharing information on how to increase coffee yield, they’re able to impact the local community immensely.

Since it began, the company has continued to grow, and now has two washing stations: Remera and Nyarusiza, where this coffee was processed.
