Caffe Praego.

Team Praego are an extremely passionate bunch. Who simply love tasting and producing superb quality coffee for their discerning customers. Today they remain totally committed to the farmers they buy from. They promised that not only would they continue to buy from them as long as they continued to produce great coffee, but this extended to supporting their communities as well.

 

Caffe Praego choose to buy 80% of their coffee from Rwanda. The coffee has sweet and floral notes, balanced with a superb body and lasting finish that is synonymous with classic Rwandan characteristics. It really is a very special coffee when extracted or brewed correctly (which we will of course help you with). As a coffee bean supplier, quality and taste is of utmost importance to us.

How it all started…

We work in close partnership with our coffee supplier and sister Company, The Caffe Praego Coffee Company Limited. We think the team at Caffe Praego is pretty unique – like their coffee story. It all started back in 2012 when we began sourcing our coffee from Northern Rwanda. The region has the perfect climate for growing superb quality coffee trees. Consistent rainfall, combined with glorious sunshine, falling on rich volcanic soil enables the cherries to grow into ripe and plump fruits. At the beginning Team Praego met some amazing farmers from a few of the best co-operatives in the region and since then have developed a wonderful partnership that now forms part of the wider Praego family.

The coffee…

We choose to buy 80% of our coffee from Rwanda. We love the sweet and floral notes, balanced with a superb body and lasting finish that is synonymous with classic Rwandan characteristics. It really is a very special coffee when extracted or brewed correctly (which we will of course help you with). As a coffee bean supplier, quality and taste is of utmost importance to us.

 

Rwanda has hundreds of co-operatives that produce a wide variety of coffee. We now source from 3 co-operatives all producing some beautiful coffees in order to make up the delicious blend. The washing stations all sit on the shores of Lake Kivu surrounded by the most glorious forests and mountains. This idyllic location really does take your breath away with its natural beauty. We travel there by boat (wooden canoe) and this only adds to the magic of the adventure.

 

We visit Rwanda twice a year not only to visit all the famers to check on quality and supply but also to check on the various community projects, meeting with teachers, children, parents and carers.

 

We also source fully washed Rwandan green beans from a number of carefully selected cooperatives throughout the region.
