Rwanda Sake

Located in the district of Ngoma, in the eastern part of Rwanda, the Sake Farm takes its name from the lake Sake, that runs alongside it. The plantation has been managed by Marie Laetitia Kayitesire since 1999, when the first bourbon coffee variety was planted.

In 2003, a washing station was built inside the plantation, located at 1450 mt a.s.l, which carefully and scrupulously processes the Specialty Coffee lots cultivated by 2200 farmers. The coffee that we have selected is of Bourbon and Kent varieties.

This project is part of the INTERNATIONAL WOMEN COFFEE ALLIANCE, an association which supports women and their families in producing countries.

In fact, the farmers of the Sake Farm are mainly women and young people who, thanks to their salary, are able to significantly improve their lives and reduce poverty in this area.

The International Women Coffee Alliance

We love to support the IWCA -International Women Coffee Alliance (not only because we are a quite a few women working at Mokaflor and we believe in women power!) because of the difference we can make all together for those who take care of probably the most important step of the long production chain of coffee: the growing and harvesting of the coffee plant.

The mission of IWCA is “to empower women in the international coffee community to achieve meaningful and sustainable lives; and to encourage and recognize the participation of women in all aspects of the coffee industry”.
