Buf Decaf (Rwanda)


100% Red Bourbon, fully washed and dried, then gently decaffeinated, ensuring that the complex flavour profile of these beans remains intact. A smooth cup, with bergamot and stone-fruit notes.

  • The story...

    Buf Café was founded in 2003 by the inspirational business woman Epiphanie Mukashyaka, a widow of the Rwandan genocide and civil war of 1994. After the devastation of the war she set about rebuilding and developing her business and with it the local community. Epiphanie and her family now produce and export coffee across the world, while offering social and economic support to local women and their families.


    This 100% Red Bourbon coffee is produced by a community of farmers, who gather together to process their coffee cherries at the Remera and Nyarusiza washing station owned by Epiphanie. The level of care that each station takes over their processing is impressive. Every step of the process is designed to weed out poor quality beans and improve the favour of the final cup.


    Use of a natural and gentle carbon dioxide/water decaffeination process ensures the complex flavour profile of this beautiful coffee stays intact whilst removing over 99.9% caffeine from the beans.
