WELCOME TO JURU COFFEE
Welcome to the website of the Juru Coffee. We focus on integrity, efficiency, environmental sustainability and securing our coffee farmers’ livelihoods. We want to develop their skills and expertise and build hope for the next generation of farmers, while delivering exquisite coffee to our customers.
Juru Coffee’s exceptional quality specialty coffee is from beautiful Rwanda, the Land of Thousand Hills. Here in the Eastern Province at Kayonza, in the African Rift Valley and near the Tanzanian border and Akagera National Park.
In the Northern Province at Rulindo, altitudes reach 2,200m with regular rainfall and rich soil for our coffee trees. The local population has planted and farmed here traditionally since the 1920s.
Juru, meaning “heaven”, aims to bring communities together, shifting them from subsistence farming to the production of premium coffee. When Rwandan coffee families can produce and sell a high value product, they can subsequently invest in the education and wellbeing of their children and break the cycle of poverty.

Juru Coffee Ltd Broadening
From the ﬂedgling days of the organization, there are now almost 2,000 farming families (807 in the east and 1,136 in the north) working with Juru Coffee. Each one of our family farms are 50/50 owned by husband and wife teams. Our harvesting and processing operations employ over 70% women with over 85% young adults.
The world is turning back to organic food including coffee. Many coffee buyers are interested in organic coffee. Ergo, we are producing bio-coffee to respond to new market demand.
For that reason, Juru coffee has signed an MoU with National Agricultural Export Development Board (NAEB) and Rulindo District for implementation of Organic coffee farming and processing Project in the District through collaboration and support to farmers. The first Juru Coffee Ltd goal was to work with farmers owning lands indicated for coffee farming or/and farmers with already planted coffee farms. Coincidentally, The District had planted coffee trees for farmers on 129 hectares in addition to more coffee trees that were already planted with the aim to protect from erosion a Water Dam created for an irrigation project funded by the World Bank.
In Rulindo, we will also develop an Agro-tourism which will include touring our high-altitude coffee farms, participating in coffee farming, harvesting, processing and night cupping and visiting farming families.
Camping will be available and also a small guest house. This project will reinforce our coffee traceability and generate another income stream in the community.
