About

Young producer, innovative, driven by quality

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.

"I drank so much coffee, good and bad, in the 18 years working in the industry, and I can legit say the coffee from Gasharu is the best Rwandan I have ever tasted. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next crop."

Daniel Horbat, Sumo Coffee Roasters

"If you look for Rwandan coffees that carry distinctive value and taste great go for Gasharu Coffee. Valentin is very innovative and passionate. Coffees that he produces are often from experimental processing, which makes them unique in terms of their profiles and quality. Gasharu coffees were extremely popular with our customers who loved them for their distinct, complex taste. We admire Valentin's coffee story, the way he reached the place where he is now and the way he works with local community. Valentin is highly professional, always there to answer your questions and share information, great to work with. "
