They own and operate sixteen wet milling stations and work directly with farmers throughout Rwanda – buying, milling, processing and marketing their coffees.
Today, Rwanda is Africa’s ninth largest Arabica coffee producer with about 450,000 small farms which average less than one hectare in size (about 165 coffee trees per coffee farmer) totaling about 28,000 hectares in coffee cultivation. Most of the green coffee is wet processed often at communal washing stations used by numerous coffee farmers.
