Since then, it has played a pioneering role in revitalizing an industry that was severely decimated by the 1994 Rwandan genocide against the Tutsi and helped transform it into the cash crop that benefits more than 400,000 farmers that it is today.
Led by founder and chairman, Mr. J. Paul Rwagasana, CBC possesses a combined extensive knowledge and experience that spans more than 35 years in the coffee industry, from farming to production, processing, quality control, marketing and export operations.
