Coffee Never Tasted so Good!

posted in: Conservationn, CSR, Uncategorized | 6,588

Getting up in the morning can be tasking, regardless of whether you are up at the crack of dawn or have the luxury to linger in bed a little longer. For some, a hot cup of coffee can be just the thing that gets you up and moving- ready to start the day.

With every cup served, Kigali Serena Hotel and Lake Kivu Serena Hotel is giving you an opportunity to help over 40,000 Rwandan women farmers advance their expertise in coffee agronomy. How, you may ask? Well, through the Sustainable Growers Non-Profit Program, these local farmers (who are mostly women) are trained to become professional suppliers of specialty coffee and are now a part of our supply chain.

You can enjoy also enjoy world-class coffee, that boasts of delicate flavors and is highly sought-after by connoisseurs across the globe, right in the comfort of your room as Sustainable Growers have partnered with us to supply in-room coffee pod machines. I don’t know about you, but having a piping shot of espresso ready on a touch of button and only a few feet away, makes waking up in the morning easier.

What’s more, as a guest staying with us at both our Rwandan properties- Kigali Serena Hotel and Lake Kivu Serena Hotel- you are welcome to learn more about coffee by taking part in the coffee farm tours and master classes offered by the Sustainable Growers Program. Here, you can discover how Rwanda’s world-class coffee is harvested, evaluated, roasted, and served. Quite a rare opportunity to experience the whole process of how the coffee goes from farm to table.

And as an added bonus, coffee makes for a great gift to take back home to your friends and family while also supporting a local business. What better souvenir to take back from your travels?

Over the last four decades, responsible business has been one of the hallmarks of Serena Hotels. As a company, we continually strive to integrate eco-practices into our daily interactions and processes to further stimulate local economic activity, development and growth in and around our areas of operation.

Our procurement strategy thrives through local sourcing. At all costs, we encourage and promote local community based suppliers, local farmers and companies that support small scale producers and dis-advantaged groups, like the Sustainable Coffee Growers.

This initiative, as with all our initiatives, is aligned towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set out by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). More specifically; SDG 5-Gender equality: Achieve gender equality and empower women and girls, SDG 8-Decent work and economic growth: Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all, SDG 12-Responsible consumption and production: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns and SDG 17- Partnerships for the goals: Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

As you plan your next stay with us, don’t forget to carve out some time for the coffee farm tours and master classes.

We can’t wait for you to come enjoy the coffee with us soon!

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d
    post to let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers
