Get ready for a caffeine-free trip down memory lane with a coffee that conjures up notes of chocolates, lime-flavoured boiled sweets and smooth buttery caramel. Kigeme ticks all of our boxes, with its diverse, sweet-shop flavours swimming through one another.

Origin
Kigeme is located close to a village called Munombe, in the Nyamagabe District of southern Rwanda.
Most of Rwanda is very mountainous, and the Kigeme farm is no exception, with extraordinary altitudes as high as 2100masl. It’s not just these high altitudes that encourage tasty growing coffee; its rich volcanic soil, courtesy of a nearby volcano that erupts every 1,000 years, is also a major factor in its success. Kigeme is made up of around 370 smallholder farmers who harvest their cherries, then gather together at the washing station.

CO2 Process
This coffee goes through the CO2 process, which is similar to the preparation of washed coffee. However, this method involves using squashed carbon dioxide in water to attract, and then remove, the caffeine from the green coffee. As this approach only uses CO2 and water – and charcoal as a filter – it’s completely chemical free.

While the caffeine is extracted, none of the proteins or carbohydrates are disturbed, leaving us with all those tasty flavours. What’s more, the byproducts of the CO2 process are completely natural and recyclable, which is great news for the planet!

The unique growing conditions and processing combine to make Kigeme a distinct, beautiful-tasting decaf coffee that offers a grown-up take on childhood favourites.

FAQs

Are your beans freshly roasted?

  • Yes! Our team of experts hand roast our beans regularly, in small batches, depending on current order volumes. This is done to maintain freshness and reduce waste.

Do you sell your coffee pre-ground?

  • All of our beans can be sold whole or ground for use with AeroPress, cafetieres, V60s and other dripper cones, filter coffee machines or moka pots. See our Grind Guide beneath the available grinds for more details.

Are your coffees organic?

  • We believe that most, if not all, of our coffees are organic, but it's expensive and difficult for small batch farmers to get certified.
