We are happy to be invited by our friends Melbourne Coffee Merchants to participate in The Umuvumu Project is a fundraising campaign to
support the children of coffee farming families who work with Buf Coffee in Rwanda.
This project supports the children of coffee farming families who work with Buf Coffee in Rwanda. Although school is compulsory in Rwanda, many families face challenges in finding adequate care for their younger children during the coffee harvest season. This time of year is often when a family will make the bulk of their annual income, and their time is spent either on the farm or at the coffee washing station. Whilst the older siblings attend school, younger children have nowhere to go. This is why the owners of Buf Coffee decided to build the Umuvumu kindergarten next to their Nyarusiza washing station.
The aim of this project is to raise funds for a playground, which will help the children learn and develop physically and mentally.

We are a small batch roaster, currently roasting early mornings every Monday*. LIGHT coffee taste best from 10-14 days post roast date. Please select from available roast dates and their respective suggested optimum brewing period~ Coffee that have been roasted the previous week would have rested perfect to drink when you receive them! Just like wine, coffee is an organic product, its optimum peak would vary from batch to batch.
DISPATCH + POSTAGE
After our QC, we carefully pack your roasted coffee, and aim to dispatch by Wednesday for all our weekly freshly roasted online orders*. Please note dispatch is also subjected to when your order is placed and grouped according to suburb routes and interstate courier cut off time. We are currently only sending within Australia, depending on which part of the country you are in the transit time may vary. Please also take into account delays due to COVID restrictions + impacts across the country + public holidays.
If you would like your coffee pre-ground please leave a note at the check out - we kindly ask pre-ground coffee orders to be in before Tuesdays for the week's dispatch/send out (your coffee will be ground on a EK43 at our shop front).
*please note at times roast date may have a +2 or -2 day variance, when purchasing two different roast date in one order, the coffee will be sent in one combined postage once the latter roast has been produced.
