Rugali is in the Nyamasheke District in the south west of Rwanda. Located on the shores of Lake Kivu.The station has seen vast improvements since being developed in April 2016. In its first season, Rugali sold natural processed coffees and was the first and only legally approved station in Rwanda to do so. Now, naturals in Rwanda are both common and revered in their appeal.

In late 2018, early 2019, the team at Rugali built out an amazing new dry mill that's pushed their quality control to a new level. Previously, they were using a publicly accessed dry-mill for all the coffees produced by Muraho Trading Co. Now, all of the coffee is being processed at Rugali and a vast improvement has occurred in the sorting and the efficiency at the mill.

This particular lot is a natural that has undergone an anaerobic fermentation. Once the ripe cherries have been sorted for quality they are placed in a tank and a plastic sheet is laid over the top. Cool water is then poured on top of the plastic sheet to create a sealed environment for the anaerobic fermentation to take place. After 48 hours the cherries are rinsed with the water on top and then dried on raised beds.

Once your order is received, it will be processed and shipped in 1-3 days.

We source directly from producers when we can to make sure the most profit gets to the farmer. Our sourcing values are shown through our icons on each of our coffee labels and on the back of our coffee bags.

Our 340g and 2lb coffee bags are made entirely of from plant materials and breakdown in a relatively short period of time.

Can I put my used bag in the city compost?
Putting these bags in the city of Calgary's compost is not recommended, due to the current processing facility. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost (see further down the page for for info).

Alternative
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.
