Rwanda is blessed with ideal conditions for growing coffee, which include high altitude, regular rainfall and volcanic soil with a good organic structure. The vast majority of Rwandan coffee is produced by smallholder farmers, numbering around half a million, and each of them often has a plot of little more than one hectare per family. Coffee is grown in most parts of the country, but farms in particular are concentrated along Lake Kivu in the southern province.
Rwandan small farmers organise in cooperation and share centralised mills – or washing stations, as they are known among the locals. The flowering takes place between September and October and the harvest takes place from March to July, with consignments being sent from August to December. Gatare is one of the oldest washing stations in the country since 2003. It also has a really good reputation in processing high quality coffee for export. This station is located in Nyamasheke district in the western province and is surrounded by hills covered with coffee trees. Gatare has competed in the Cup of Excellence competition many times and has always finished in high winning positions.
