Rwanda Lake Kivu (Oct - Nov 2021)

Regular price $17.00

Known as the 'land of a thousand hills', coffee was first brought into Rwanda in the early 1900s by German missionaries and played an important role in the country's export market. It became the most valuable export by the 1990s, but this was decimated by the unfortunate events in 1994. Following the events, strong foreign aids and interests poured into the country which helped elevated the coffee industry and higher quality coffee are produced.

Coffee is actually grown all around the country, without any specific geographic zones of constrictions (as some countries do). Our coffee this month comes from the eastern region of the country, around Lake Kivu, This exceptionally fertile area around the lake offers some of the most complex, delicate, and flavourful coffee!

We taste plums & berries and a slight herbal note, with a medium, velvety body, balanced with a pleasant acidity which accentuates sweetness of the cup.

As our #dYScover beans are roasted specially, and separately from the rest of our offerings, we only have limited quantities per month! If you have ever thought or wondered about specialty coffee from Rwanda, do make sure you give this a try soon!

There are so many different types of coffee grown in various regions of the world, with each region tasting very distinct from one another. 

#dYScover, by Yong Seng Coffee, is our attempt at letting you experience high quality/specialty coffee from the various coffee-producing regions of the world. Read more about specialty coffee here!

Join us on this journey as we bring in coffee from different regions every month, as we explore the world of coffee together.

A taste of heritage

and fresh perspectives

Yong Seng Coffee specialises in Singapore's favourite - traditional Nanyang coffee, a.k.a. kopi (meaning coffee in Malay). Being the lifeblood of many Singaporeans, we have served our many blends of traditional kopi for over 40 years, in addition to a selection of dry-roasted coffee of various origins.

Today, embodying heritage with every bag, we strive to keep our family's legacy and Singapore's kopi culture alive, while continuously working to expand and refine our offerings to cater to your ever-evolving preferences.


Tried the Arabica Blend and it changed my perspective of white coffee. Ditch your 3-in-1 and brew your own coffee with Yong Seng this CB period.

I ordered all the 6 choices (of Drip Bag Coffee) to try. Arrived yesterday and tried the Signature Blend #1 this morning. Clear indication of roasted & packing dates on each packet. Fresh and full of aroma, highly recommended. Tks!
