Through sheer determination and courage, and with a shared vision of using coffee to grow skills, and empower economic and social well-being, he hatched a plan, secured funding , and set up San Company Limited, in partnership with 300 men, women and youth coffee farmers in Western Rwanda.
Investing in the Koakai Cooperative and the 100Ha Shangi Farm we now produce specialty grade Arabica Bourbon, and Jackson 2/1257 cupping at 86+. Our Cooperative sources only the very best cherries from our farmers – who have anywhere between 20 and 8000 coffee trees. From these farms, we produce 40 tons of slow-grown coffee beans of intense flavour.
During harvest, the mountain slopes are alive with the bright colours of the women’s kitenge fabrics as they selectively pick the bright red cherries. In the distance, you can hear the sounds of the Nyungwe Rainforest chimpanzees, whose future is now more secure through the rebuilding of our communities, driven by coffee.
Our coffee is washed and dried at our station on the shores of Lake Kivu, where the cool mountain air mingles with the moist air from across the African Great Lakes, providing the perfect conditions for processing our cherries.
We produce coffee that brings hope; grown in one of the world’s most iconic coffee regions, in the midst of one of Africa’s oldest rainforests and on the shores of one of Africa’s Great Lakes.
All of these elements combine to create a beautiful cup of coffee that, as you sip, takes your taste buds to Rwanda, and ensures your support is building a brighter future for this wonderful country, so full of promise.
