Fresh Pomegranate and Subtle Sweetness of Dried Figs
This Rwandan natural coffee cracks in with the acidity of fresh pomegranate, a sour aroma of hibiscus, as well as a subtle sweetness of dried figs. It is gentle to taste, making it ideal to be enjoyed as a cup of tea.
Respected leader, Epiphanie Mukashyaka
Buf Café was founded in 2003 by Epiphanie Mukashyaka, a dynamic businesswoman and a source of inspiration to countless female entrepreneurs in Rwanda’s coffee sector and beyond. This is because even though Epiphanie was widowed during the 1994 genocide — which claimed over 800,000 lives in just 3 months — she chose not to leave her family’s small coffee farm. Instead, she set about rebuilding and developing her business and with it, the local community. Buf Café now provides an abundance of jobs, especially during peak harvest seasons, and they also share surplus profits with cooperatives they work with.
