Rwanda Bernard Uwitije Coffee

Our first Rwanda and what a beaut! Natural coffees were rare a couple years back in Rwanda but now they’ve really got the hang of the process. A super juicy, complex flavour profile driven with mixed fruits. Wanting to set up a proper and sustainable business in the coffee sector, he built his first wet mill near his hometown in 2016. He used the first year to learn all the details of operating a wet mill successfully, and he built a second Washing station the following season, where he then mastered processing large volumes without compromising quality.

Bwenda was his third washing station, which he built in 2018 after realizing a group of farmers who were a bit isolated, did not have a closer washing station to process their cherries into high quality coffee. 2019 was the first season of operating Bwenda, processing only 1 container worth of cherries. Bernard is already developing various programs to help farmers delivering to Bwenda with extension services and he is expanding the capacity of the wet mill.

To ensure you receive the freshest beans possible, we roast to order. Roasting usually takes place on Wednesdays, therefore your order will be dispatched within a week.

Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that.
