Lake Kivu is one of the ‘African Great Lakes’ and it is nestled on the border between the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda, located in the Albertine Rift.
Coffee production hasn't always been native to Rwanda. It started in the early 1900s and it was brought in the country by the Germans and then Belgium made coffee production compulsory.
Rwanda recognized the financial benefits of exporting coffee and continued to do so in the following years. This industry became of major importance to the country's economy and the biggest major export product.
Their economy saw a stable growth throughout the years, which allowed them to invest in the manufacturing process, which only led to higher quality coffee beans and a delicious commodity for all of us.
