The Story of MUNKAZE:

Munkaze is a region celebrated for its fertile soil, where the most exceptional Natural and Premium coffees thrive. Nestled in the Buyenzi region, within the province of KAYANZA, the MUNKAZE Processing Station benefits from its proximity to the Kibira forest and tea-growing areas at higher elevations.


Ephrem Sebatigita, the driving force behind this remarkable coffee, carries forward a family legacy that dates back to his grandfather, Ntirandekura. In 1938, Ntirandekura became one of the pioneering coffee growers in the province of Kayanza, laying the foundation for future generations.


Ephrem, a licensed Q-grader since 2010, not only upholds this legacy but also contributes to the coffee community by serving as a local judge for the Cup of Excellence in 2012, 2013, and 2014.


The Sebatigita family manages two farms, one in Rubagabaga covering 22 hectares with 17,000 trees. Some of these coffee trees have stood since the 1930s, a testament to their enduring quality. The second farm, located near the coffee washing station in Munkaze, holds 8,000 coffee trees, including the exotic Geisha variety from Guatemala, totalling 700 trees. Combined, these farms nurture approximately 30,000 coffee trees.


While the farms contribute significantly, the heart of Munkaze coffee lies in the smallholders surrounding the washing station and the cooperative Twaranyuzwe, a proud member of the COCOCA Union. This collaborative effort consistently produces award-winning coffee, with SCA cupping scores ranging from 85 to 90+.
