From Hundred House Coffee:

The Rusigo and Mbogo farm forms part of the Kinini Coffee Washing Station, a company started by Malcolm Clear and Jaqueline Turner – they first set up the charity A New Beginning in Rwanda in 2008 and started growing coffee in 2012.

A New Beginning was set up to help a group of widows and orphans displaced during the genocide in 1994, who were resettled in an area of uncultivated savannah. The charity set up a school and a health post which has fully trained staff and is self-sufficient. Their work is still ongoing and they are raising another £24k to build three more classrooms for the ever-growing school.

In 2012 they started R & B Import Export to partner with farmers in the Northern Province of Rwanda with the aim to improve the lifestyle and well-being of the local community. They partnered with 633 local farmers and the Local Government to grow coffee in 252 hectares of prime consolidated coffee growing land in Rusiga and Mbogo Sectors, Rulindo District, Northern Province. The coffee cherries grown are then transported to the washing station. The land is ideal for coffee growing, which soil samples have proven and the first lot of batch coffee we tasted last year at Hundred House, which was a washed, was awesome.

Malcolm Clear is a retired businessman, builder and developer. Jacqueline Turner is Rwandan and has dual nationality, British and Rwandese, she worked for the Rwandan Government until she married in 2001, and is also a member of the International Women’s Coffee Association (IWCA).
