History of coffee in Rwanda
The history of coffee cultivation in Rwanda dates back to the early 20th century, when German colonists introduced Bourbon coffee plantations from the island of Reunion. However, coffee production in Rwanda was limited by ethnic conflict, war and poverty. After the genocide ended in 1994 and the political situation in the country stabilized, coffee cultivation became one of the priorities of the government and international organizations. Over the past two decades, coffee cultivation in Rwanda has grown significantly, and coffee has become one of the country's most important exports. Thanks to investments in plantation development and cultivation technology, as well as an increase in coffee quality, Rwandan coffee has become a valued product in the coffee market. Rwandan coffees are often classified as specialty coffees, and their unique flavor and aroma from different regions of the country are appreciated by coffee connoisseurs around the world. In addition, coffee production has become an important source of livelihood for thousands of families in rural Rwanda.
