Very smooth mouthfeel, soft and elegant but intense About Impano Most communities across the world have benefited from the natural resources around them to create generational wealth. However, despite being the community that produces more coffee in Rwanda, the Nyamasheke District still ranks amongst the poorest and most affected by malnutrition nationwide. Impano (Gift) experimental coffee carries the idea that coffee is a gift that can transform our community. This anaerobic coffee is carefully fermented for about 100 hours to ensure a taste that makes it worth a gift for a coffee lover. It suits diverse preferences with a memorable flavour. We hope that a cup of this coffee can evoke the power to connect coffee lovers and our producers’ community, transforming the drinking experience and the growers' lives. [We want this coffee to be a gift for coffee lovers] “Coffee for our community is more than just beans. For long, coffee has been a reason for people to spend time together, for a family to go out and meet up with others after selling their coffee because they have some money to afford a drink and food at a restaurant. Particularly the famous “Igisafuriya” or “brochettes”. These are all values that people who are not from the community would not necessarily understand or would not care about. Having grown up with many farmers in the community, my family values what coffee means to the quality of life of the community and to the social cohesion that is essential for any society.”

The story of Gasharu Coffee goes back to 1976 when 17 years-old Celestin Rumenerangabo, my father, planted his first coffee trees in Nyamasheke. A farmer and buyer of cherries, he grew the business to what it is today. We now have 2 washing stations, Gasharu and Muhororo, and can export beans from nearly 1650 farmers directly. Over the last 43 years, we’ve maintained an unwavering dedication to making the highest-quality coffee we can. Coffee has been critical to rebuilding our community after the 1994 Tutsi Genocide and it remains an important part of our culture and ways. With local businesses being taken over by large multinational companies, we are aware that we have to make Gasharu Coffee more resilient. We have improved our sourcing and processing methods, encouraging curiosity about innovative ideas to take coffee to the next level, producing naturals, honeys and experiments. Our coffee grows at an altitude of 1580-2100 masl and has proven to yield a fine and flavoursome cup.
