Coffee itself is not a new commodity for Rwanda. Believed to have been introduced at the end of the 19th century, coffee was the main source of revenue for rural families.
The genocide in 1994 devastated the county, claiming the lives of nearly a million people. Many coffee plantations were deserted and generations of farming knowledge was lost.
Melbourne Coffee Merchants have been working with the same cooperatives and washing stations since they first started buying coffee from Rwanda in 2008. Being a relatively young specialty coffee industry, the enthusiasm, open mindedness and eagerness to learn is reflected in the quality of coffee produced.
Red Brick is currently featuring two amazing Rwandan coffees in our Seasonal blend.
Join us for some brews and beers as Melbourne Coffee Merchants share what makes this resilient origin so special.
