It was until after the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi and after losing their entire family that the two sisters Francine Nyiramana and Immaculée Mukamana decided to return to their family’s owned land known as Nyamurinda hill to start coffee plantation. Despite all the scars caused by the atrocities, the two ladies gained courage to establish a plantation of coffee in southern province of Rwanda, at Nyamurinda mountain. Eventually the coffee farming inspired what is currently Nyamurinda Coffee Growers Ltd.
Today, through its Karora Washing Station, the company processes speciality coffee from its own plantation and from smallholder coffee farmers organized in Karora Cooperative in Western Rwanda. Nyamurinda coffee is then roasted, sold locally and exported internationally.
