The Background

Although coffee from Rwanda is not nearly as highly regarded as the coffee that comes from some other African countries, the reputation of Rwanda coffee has been picking up steam in recent years. Rwanda coffee is often compared to Kenyan coffee, which is quite a compliment. Cooper's Coffee sources their beans from small farms that grow their coffee organically and with great care. This coffee is a great representation of the what coffee from Rwanda can be!
