This coffee was sourced from the mountain village of Cyiya in the Mahembe sector. Kivubelt has been working closely with a group of 100 families in Cyiya since 2015. The village is located at an altitude of 1900 to 2000 m.a.s.l. high up in the mountains. The farmers walk for hours to sell their coffee cherries at Kivubelt's washing station in Murondo. As is common in Rwanda, they grow coffee in Cyiya along with other crops such as beans, yams and cassava for their own consumption.
