Nyamulinda was built and established by Immaculate and Francine, friends who are both from the Nyamagabe area, in southern Rwanda. After realising the potential for coffee in their home village, they decided to grow it themselves, and planted over 20,000 coffee trees on their combined farm land. At the time of harvesting, they decided to process the coffee on their own, in order to maintain the quality achieved on their farms. Nyamulinda was born from this dedication to quality production, and the washing station was built in 2016 and began processing their coffee, and also that of their neighbouring farmers. With high quality at the core of their ethos, they want to expand Nyamulinda’s capacity, and grow their volume from the 220 tons of cherries processed this year.
