ABOUT

Mister Kong was born in the Northern Province of Rwanda, in the Gakenke district and Coko terroir. The northern region is currently under development, like the rest of country. A first washing station was built in 2004, and there are now several hundred operating throughout the country. It was the local exporter Bufcoffee, a family-run business, who found this unique coffee for us.

The Mister Kong Robusta is like a Geisha: the first cupping is always a unique experience! This European Preparation coffee has few defects and is packaged in a Grain Pro jute bag to keep it as fresh as possible.

THE TERROIR OF GAKENEKE

The Northern Province of Rwanda is a large coffee-producing region in which lots of washing stations have been set up. The area counts several thousand producers, and each owns a plot of land. The Northern Province, with its lakes and mountains, is a perfect environment for developing excellent coffees. It sits at an altitude of over 1,600 metres, which is ideal for coffee trees.

The Coko terroir has a savannah climate with a dry winter. Rainfall is much more abundant in the summer than in the winter. The average annual temperature is 21.3 °C, for an average rainfall of 828 ml. Some forests have been preserved and hikes are organised near the Visoke volcano, from where you may even see a gorilla as the gorilla population has increased in Rwanda over the past 10 years.
