This Experience starts from Azizi Life’s office & boutique in Muhanga Town (about a one hour drive from Kigali). 


Pick up from Kigali Hotel Lobby: 6:45 am
Take a step back in time to learn and taste coffee picked, washed, roasted and ground by hand.  The Azizi Life Experience morning begins with a drive to a nearby village, where you and your Azizi Life facilitator will be welcomed by the ladies of the cooperative.

After introductions from your hostess, you help out in the kitchen to get lunch underway.  Then it is off to the field to check on the coffee plants and harvest some of the cherries.  Once collected, the cherries will need to be washed before removing the pulp, so its off down into the valley to collect the water.

At noontime, you’ll share a simple local meal with your host family, with plenty of time to chat and learn about each other’s lives. After lunch, its time to roast, grind and sieve the beans, before they can be turned into the perfect cup of traditional Rwandan coffee. You will love working with the ladies as you work, and we can assure you will also be laughing together.

The day finishes back at the Azizi Life office, with a cold Fanta and a chance to think back over the highlights of the day. There you can browse through some of the beautiful crafts made by the Azizi Life artisans and do a little fair trade shopping.
