Welcome to Ruvubu Coffee

Ruvubu is a big river and park in Burundi and is situated next to the village (farm), where the coffee beans are produced. The river water is used to wash and process the coffee into its new mature state. The Ruvubu River is in central East Africa where waters gather from the most distant portion of the Nile basin. It is about 300 km long. It rises in the north of Burundi, near the town of Kayanza and then does a southward arc through Burundi, being joined by the Ruvyironza River near Gitega.

Kavugangoma: Is the name of the coffee processing station in a little town called Mwakiro, in the province of Muyinga, north-east of Burundi where the coffee cherries are processed. Richard Kaderi, the owner of COPROCAME (coffee processing company), started Ruvubu Coffee in early 2016 as a distribution centre in Diep River, Cape Town and to promote and sell his premium (15+) and standard grade (TT), green coffee beans to locals. The single origin, arabica beans are shipped in directly from the farm to the warehouse (no middle-man involved).
