The purpose of this research report is to provide a clear understanding of the methodology used by the Africa Great Lakes Region Coffee Support project (AGLC) to determine the cost of production (CoP) for coffee farmers in Rwanda. In documenting how the CoP data were collected and the estimates derived, users will be equipped to use the findings of this research confidently and appropriately as they incorporate them into planning and decision making in the coffee sector. It is intended for this report to also assist research purposes and program implementation elsewhere in the Africa Great Lakes region and beyond.
