Our Story

Welcome to Silverbacks Coffee! We hope you will take the time to read through our Story. Because we are so much more than just coffee and we truly hope you are inspired by what we are doing! 


Rwanda, the Land of a Thousand Hills, is a small nation in the heart of Africa. For centuries, its people have thrived in a rich and diverse environment. But in 1994, the world watched in horror as the Rwandan Genocide unfolded, a tragedy that would claim the lives of almost a million innocent people, and leave many more scarred, both physically and emotionally. During those 100 days, the fabric of a nation was torn apart. 


However, it is not those tragic events that define Rwanda today, but rather the indomitable spirit of its people, who chose to rise from the ashes and rebuild their nation. They embraced the power of forgiveness, knowing that only by letting go of the past could they truly move forward. Today, Rwanda is a shining example of what can be achieved when we stand united, embracing our shared humanity. It is a story of healing, forgiveness, and the power of human resilience.

The goal of Silverbacks Coffee is to give back a large portion of the proceeds with the hope of changing the world one delicious cup at a time!

To see exactly how we are giving back, please visit Our Ventures. We are not just coffee, we are a shining example of the human spirit.
