Muraho Trading Company is the brainchild of Gaudam and Karthick Anbalagan, two Kiwi brothers who were raised to call Rwanda home. They are motivated by showing the world not only the very best that Rwandan speciality coffee has to offer, but also the people and the country that they feel have given them so much.
Since building their first washing station, Kilimbi, in March 2016, they have gone on to establish five more stations in Rwanda - Rugali (April 2016), Shyira (January 2017), Bumbogo (January 2017), Gisheke (April 2018), and Vunga (March 2019). We have already shared stunning coffees from some of these washing stations with you, and we hope to offer coffees from all of them over the months and years ahead.
Aside from their focus on quality, it is MTC’s youthfulness, vibrancy, and commitment to bringing positive change to the communities that they serve that make us proud to represent their coffee. We believe that engaging youth, and showcasing the farmers that produce such wonderful coffee is key to the long term sustainability of the speciality coffee industry, and the livelihood of the communities that support it.
