Coffee sector

Coffee  was introduced to Rwanda by Germans in  early  1900s.  It  has traditionally been the country’s most important export. Rwanda coffee plays a major role in the economy of the country, contributing significantly to foreign exchange earnings and  to the  monetization of the  rural economy.

Currently, 400,000 small holder farm families produce it and depend on it for their livelihoods. 97% of Rwandan coffee production is arabica mainly bourbon type while robusta accounts for 3%.

The production ranges from  267, 000 to 420,000 bags per  year (16  000 MT to 21000MT). The  total area in coffee is  currently 42,000  hectares  grown and   it  is grown in most provinces in the  country at an  altitude less than 1900 m.

Most of the  coffee is wet processed often at communal washing stations used by numerous coffee farmers.

Rwandan coffee has been one  of  the  big  hits in  the world   specialty market in  the   last five  years arisen from  excellent growing conditions for specialty coffee. The increase appeal of Rwanda coffee is confirmed by awards assigned in international competitions like cup of excellence (CoE)  that Rwanda is hosting every year since 2007.

Varieties cultivated: Harrar; POP  3303/21; Jackson 2/1257; BM139; BM 71
Harvesting season: March to July for Arabica and  May to July for Robusta
Export products: green coffee (fully and semi-washed) at more than 90% of coffee export and  roasted coffee.
