Our story

Kawah coffee beans are farmed in our family Coffee farm, Kinunu Agroprocessing, which is located in Boneza, Rwanda, and was founded by Chrysologue Kubwimana, a Rwandan citizen who moved back to Rwanda in 1994 as the Genocide against the Tutsis ended and after being forced to live for 30 years in exile .

When he was finally able to go back to the region where he was born, he saw that both injustice and poor farming practices permeated the local community farmers, women in majority, to improve their livelihoods. He also wanted to take part in the incredible transformation that has been happening in Rwanda since then.

His vision transformed into a renowned farm, a coffee washing station and a roasting facility over the years which local farmers are given access to as well.

By bringing their exceptional beans to Asia, Kawah gives our farmers an opportunity to be seen and recognized for their incredible work as well as telling the inspiring story of our country, Rwanda.

 

 

Behind our brand, 90% of the farmers and workers are hardworking women whom have helped bettering their community in return. Where there was no running water or schools in the community 20 years ago, today we see children and their families aspiring to a better education and life .

To us, coffee production is a combined effort that takes into account the needs of coffee farmers and the needs of our customers. When you trust us with a coffee order not only do you get a sustainably produced coffee, but you directly impact coffee farming communities.

Our coffee is made with respect to people and the planet.

Kawah coffee was founded by Rwandese national, Michaelle Kubwimana, who moved to Singapore in August 2019 with her husband and two daughters.

« When we first moved to Singapore, it was hard to even explain from where I come from. Rwanda seemed an exotic name to the ears of many and I am glad that today, through Kawah, more people are aware of the country of a thousand hills and its riches.

Rwanda has weathered a challenging past, but today, its people are imbued with a boundless sense of hope for their future. The exceptional Bourbon Arabica varietal coffee crop that many of them farm often perishes in other climates, but flourishes within the extreme alpine environment of our tropical land. 

To create a company that can help lead our farmers to a brighter future and being recognized internationally for the excellent work is exactly what I had in mind while founding Kawah coffee and your purchase of Kawah Coffee is the key to that support, and our efforts to strengthen Rwanda—one cup at a time.”
