Miró Manufactura de Café

Experienced & professional Rwandese company, FT

CAFERWA Ltd is a coffee exporting company which started its operation in 1995 with the goal of exporting coffee to different parts of the world. Our coffees are special, grown on volcanic soils on the shores of Lake Kivu, within an altitude of 1450 m -1800 m and an average rainfall of 1250mm. We own 5 washing stations that can produce an average of up to 200 MT (metric tons) of parchment each. Nkora, in Gisenyi, is the biggest washing station in Rwanda and can produce up 500 tons of parchment coffee per season. The others are Cyebumba, Kigeme, Shangi (Western Province) and Buliza (Northern Province). We nurture relationships with our farmers and adopt fair practices to ensure that they are involved in every part of the process. Most of our staff are women, many of whom are survivors of the 1994 genocide. We provide healthcare and education and empower communities to grow strong with thriving businesses whilst offering safe, healthy working conditions and sustainable farming methods.

Very juicy and super clean coffee. Really tasted like a lemon tea, with a bright citric acidity that adds to the velvety body. Very very refreshing coffee!

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
