HOW IT ALL STARTED

We think we are pretty unique and our coffee story is too. It all started back in 2012 when we began sourcing our coffee from Northern Rwanda. The region has the perfect climate for growing superb quality coffee trees. Consistent rainfall, combined with glorious sunshine, falling on rich volcanic soil enables the cherries to grow into ripe and plump fruits. At the beginning Team Praego met some amazing farmers from a few of the best co-operatives in the region and since then have developed a wonderful partnership that now forms part of the wider Praego family.

Team Praego are an extremely passionate bunch. We simply love tasting and producing superb quality coffee for our discerning customers. Today we remain totally committed to the farmers we buy from. We promised that not only would we continue to buy from them as long as they continued to produce great coffee, but this extended to supporting their communities as well.

POINT FOUNDATION

GIVING BACK TO RWANDA

Ethical coffee projects

When Charles first visited Rwanda in 2007 he met some very inspirational people living in dire poverty and vowed to help them through our coffee & tea sales. The Point Foundation made a commitment 2 months after his first visit to allow ‘on the ground’ management of our projects close to the plantations.

The Point Foundation today gets £3 from every case of Caffe Praego coffee and 100% of these funds go to helping communities and projects in some of the most desperate areas in Rwanda. We focus our funding on orphaned & vulnerable children, whether this is through our 3 schools or our disability projects. Have a look at the latest newsletter here.

CURRENT PROJECTS

HOUSE OF CHILDREN SCHOOL (HOC)    GISEYNI

This school is so diverse in its approach to education, it just makes you smile! Able bodied children mix with those with physical disabilities, mental health issues as well as deaf and blind students that is a joy to see. Justin, the Head Master and his fantastic team nurture students with bespoke learning systems giving each and every one a brighter future. Education isn’t free in Rwanda. Currently we fund 76 disabled children with daily bus collection from their villages, school fees, uniforms, their books, lunch and glass of milk every day. In addition, we fund 3 specialist teachers’ salaries and have provided over 2500 school books in the past 12 months.

Wow, what a few weeks we have had! Working for a smaller business means that you end up getting very 'hands-on' with various projects. The most recent one was transforming a room into our new 'Academy'. This is a space for our customers to come and meet and play around with various equipment (everything from traditional, vending and filter machines) and also testing and tasting our range of products. This way you can see what would suit you best rather than just chatting about it. We are also conducting Barista training courses here giving you an introduction to coffee and setting up machines and grinders. If you need a quirky meeting space you can also come over with your sales team and see what we are about! Get in touch if you want to chat about how we can help you. ... See MoreSee Less
