The commercialization of coffee, always produced on smallholder farms, came about gradually in Rwanda. Independence in 1962 brought improvement to green coffee infrastructure as the government established more modern and centralizing processing. Still, despite much of the coffee being Bourbon, there was no focus on quality until recent decades. Rwanda’s ideal growing conditions are no longer wasted on poor processing and Rwandan specialty coffees consistently rank among the finest in the world.
