Complex, fruity, jam packed awesomeness! One of the very first single origins we roasted was a Rwanda, they have so much depth of flavour and for us you cant beat African coffees for cramming tons of fruity notes into one cup. This Rwanda caught our attention in our latest blind cupping session, searching for a real juicy filter coffee.

Buf Café was founded in 2003 by Epiphanie Mukashyaka, a dynamic businesswoman and a source of inspiration to countless other female entrepreneurs in Rwanda’s coffee sector and beyond. Buf is now managed by Epiphanie  and her son, Samuel Muhirwa, who is taking an increasingly active role in running and expanding the business. The title ‘Buf’ derives from ‘Bufundu’, the formername of the region in which itswashing stations are located.

Epiphanie, who was born in 1959, was widowed during the 1994 genocide -which claimed over 800,000 lives in just 3 months -but chose not to leave her family’s small coffee farm. Instead she set about rebuilding and developing her businessand  with  it  the  local  community.  She  started Buf  Café  in  2003,  when  she  established  Remera  washing station with a loan from the Rwandan Development Bank and the assistance of the USAID-financed PEARL project.
