Celestine – featured holding the RR tube – owns three acres of land in Rwanda’s Northern Province close to the Kinini washing station. We first met in 2016 when on a buying trip and at that time Celestine had never tasted his own coffee, the crop being too valuable for him to drink. We have been back to see Celestine and the guys in Rwanda several times since then, bringing with us his coffee roasted for him to try (having never tried coffee before he added at least seven sugars!) and his four children are growing up in his footsteps growing coffee in the Rusiga district.
We now work with the wider community and have helped to build schools and infrastructure for the benefit of the farmers and their families. More on our projects at www.kemptownproject.com

This coffee grows in a small area surrounding the washing station, its around a 90 minute drive from the centre of Kigali the Rwandan capital so really accessible. The washing station is very modern and the guys are expanding it because the coffee is in really high demand these days and so we are delighted to have a special relationship with the owners and farmers which means we can bring this coffee to you.
