MORE THAN COFFEE
Bugoyi Station | The Story
Bugoyi is located in the Western Province of Rwanda - near the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo and directly on the shores of Lake Kivu. This region generally receives very soft sunlight and cool winds coming off the lake, which Emmanuel praises as the driving force behind the particularly even drying at Bugoyi. Built in 2012 and purchased by Baho in 2016, Buogyi is Emmanuel’s largest station producing predominantly specialty coffee. Bugoyi collects cherry from ~1300 farmers, producing ~1300 bags of exportable coffee annually, and employing 187 people at the peak of the season. On top of their standard wages, Baho pays into both health insurance and pension plans for all workers at Bugoyi. Along with Fugi, this is the first station that Emmanuel focused on when launching the Baho operations. Average production volume on the small plots surrounding this station are quite low at only around 1.5 kg cherry per tree. This is mostly attributed to the extremely old trees in the area; many have been in production for close to 30 years. Emmanuel has been focusing heavily on growing Baho’s seedling distribution, and 16,000 were distributed to the Bugoyi farmers in 2019. Emmanuel has found that with his higher cherry prices, producers are becoming increasingly interested in investing in their coffee farms and growing future production.

Sip. Swallow. Repeat.
I bought these mugs on a whim to remind me of discovering my new BCF (Best Coffee Forever). While I expected whimsical, I didn’t expect them to be as functional as they are for my morning coffee. The cups are aluminum and are double walled to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. I find that I can sit and drink my coffee at a more leisurely pace knowing that the coffee stays hot throughout my morning rituals (reading the paper, breakfast, etc. ). My wife enjoys her afternoon iced tea with her beverage staying cold and refreshing throughout. I’m happy with the design, workmanship and functionality of these mugs and am looking to purchase 2 more.
The Yemenia Coffee from The Mad Priest is so rich. To know that it's bought to us from a region of the world that needs our support makes the Coffee even more fulfilling.
I love their coffee and tell everyone I know that they need to try it. I always stop by in Chattanooga to get a fresh bag.
Coffee arrived all the way from Tennessee; I’m in England. Good and strong, but with a mellow edge. Yummy!
Effective for: Up all night with newborn and up all day with toddler.
We look forward to it every morning. It’s a perfect well rounded taste.

I could smell this heavenly coffee as soon as I picked up my package... Such a smooth and easy coffee to sip & will definitely be ordering again!
It's spectacular. It's so good and once it's gone, it's gone...
You know what, forget that I said it's spectacular. it's terrible. Definitely don't buy it. Leave it for me.
Glad we stopped at breakfast in Chattanooga on our way home to wi because this coffee take the best taste award in my book. 🥇
Fantastic. We are about to make another order.
I found out about Mad Priest from an Angel's Cup subscription I was gifted. I enjoyed the coffee sample so I thought I was check out the website. BTW, Mad Priest is the only coffee company I have bought from, from the many I have tried through Angel's Cup. When I saw the Sloth Dispelling Breakfast Blend, I knew I had to get it. Not only is it the best name for any coffee I have ever seen, but it is makes a damn good cup of coffee. Hands down one of my new favorites.
Very tasty, smooth, and flavorful.
Sturdy, attractive mug. Now a favorite.
My friends and I sought after a roastery that was doing a Yemani bean. We were all very pleased to come across this roast from Mad Priest Coffee. I haven't had a coffee that quiet taste like this! Unbelievable drinking experience for me! I would buy this one again and again.
Best coffee, love it
The Sloth Dispelling coffee blend is so delicious and helps get me started in the morning I would highly recommend you give it a try. Thank you Mad Priest for making this wonderful roast for us.
