Rwanda is blessed with ideal coffee growing conditions that include high altitude, regular rainfall, volcanic soils with good organic structure and an abundance of Bourbon. The vast majority of Rwandan coffee is produced by smallholders of which there are thought to be around half a million with parcels of land often not much larger than just one hectare per family. Coffee is grown in most parts of the country, with particularly large concentrations along Lake Kivu and in the southern province. Rwandan smallholders organise themselves into cooperatives and share the services of centralised wet-mills –or washing stations as they are known locally. Flowering takes place between September and October and the harvest runs from March to July with shipments starting in late May early June.

About Baho Coffee
With more than 15 years of experience in the Rwandan speciality coffee industry, the Rusatira family found the opportunity to set up our own four coffee washing stations. The location and specific management of each station show itself in unique flavour profiles. We developed our own grading system and are continuously experimenting with washed, honey, and natural processed coffee. All year round we work together with coffee producers to support them on the field, and financially, so as to produce the best coffee cherries of the region and boost quality year after year. All our attention goes to the selection, de-pulping, fermentation, washing, drying, storage, and continuous quality control.
“Baho means "stay alive" or  "be strong", "don't give up". It is the kind of thing you say to friends when they tell you of their misfortunes or problems. When they want to give up. You hug them and say "Baho!". You give them comfort. This is what I aim to achieve with my company and the coffees we produce, to give comfort to the ones who drink it and the ones who grow it. It is something that is deeply connected to my personal history as a genocide survivor and to the journey of coffee. Coffee is a crop that goes through many difficulties. It is hit by the weather, by bad management,  then you pick it, heat if with fire…  If you could ask coffee to tell you its journey you’d cry. I believe coffee can, in fact, speak. And for me, it says something like... Baho.”
