Take a step back in time to learn and taste coffee picked, washed, roasted and ground by your own hand. The experience begins with a drive from Muhanga (Gitarama) town out to a nearby village, where you will be welcomed by the ladies of the cooperative. Then it is off to the field to the coffee plants & to harvest some of the cherries. The Cherries need to be washed before removing the pulp, so its off down into the valley to collect the water.At noontime, you’ll share a simple local meal with your host family, with plenty of time to chat and learn about each other’s lives. Then, its time to roast, grind and sieve the beans, before they can be turned into the perfect cup of traditional Rwandan coffee. You will love working with the ladies as you work, and we can assure you will also be laughing together. The day finishes back at the office in Muhanga (Gitarama) where you can shop for beautiful fair trade crafts made by local artisans.
