Rwanda is just a few degrees below the equator the Earth's longitude in Central Africa.
Rwandan coffee farming first introduced by German missionaries to around 1900. But already in 1930, coffee was spread throughout the territory and now accounts for a majority share of the income from agricultural activities. Coffee here handles over 500,000 small farms, while volume production is still only 21,000 tons per annum. Today, Rwanda is placed high emphasis on the quality of the coffee beans, so most of the grains collected and graded by hand. The quality supervises OCIR Office for the uniform industry, a state institution, which was founded in 1945 precisely for the purpose of quality control.
Coffee began to grow in the region Mibilizi, from where it spread to Kivu. In both regions, the coffee cherries are still harvested today. The only variety grown in Rwanda is arabica processed exclusively by the washed method. Rwanda has ideal conditions for the growth of high-quality coffee due to the fertile volcanic soil, altitude and frequent rain give the Rwandan coffee an unique aroma.

Growing and processing coffee directly employs about 135,000 people, or a quarter of all farmers. Their common enemy is mainly coffee rust (La Roya), which destroys plants and crops. Selective Arabica are grown in the mountains of 1300 nm and above, mostly in the shade and fertile volcanic soil.
