CUSTOM BRICK OVEN
We utilize a classic method of baking bread that’s been practiced for hundreds of years. The bricks absorb and hold high amounts of heat, which allows the heat to transfer to the dough at an extremely fast rate. That’s what ensures each loaf has that classic artisan shape and strong shape that you can only get from a brick oven.
The Daybreak Bread brick oven was handcrafted by Sam, Francois, Ivy and Francois’ schoolmate, Xavier. We built it according to the specs of ancient European communal ovens ranging from 300 - 700 years old. Like the precision shape of the cooking chamber, every aspect of the oven was expertly crafted.
Now we’re able to produce Kigali’s first artisanal, brick oven sourdough bread. We hope you’ll enjoy it!

Daybreak began as a hobby, producing bread that was shared amongst friends and family. It has always been about our community.
Our team is all local, and most of its family. When we need to build or fix something, we hire from within our local community. We source our ingredients locally and are committed to benefiting our community in all of our endeavors.

After more than a decade of working to understand and provide solutions for East Africa’s energy needs as CEO of Great Lakes Energy, Sam Dargan decided to move into a consulting career. This allowed him to explore one of his favorite hobbies; brick oven artisanal bread.
In 2006, Francois wandered into Sam’s life in downtown Kigali. Since then, he’s become family. Francois has always been an aspiring chef. He grew up with parents that love to cook and since then he’s been exploring everything from traditional Rwandan cuisine to Indian, Thai, and baking.
The stars were aligned…
Somewhere along the way, Francois picked up one of Sam’s bread making books and was intrigued. A few weekends later and Sam and Francois were baking their first loaves of bread and their simple little oven.
They started giving loaves away to their friends at first. Everyone loved it so much that it wasn’t long before their hobby transformed into a proper bread making operation. Soon they built and perfected the locally made brick oven and Daybreak Bread was born.
Once they officially decided to start up a business, they decided to dedicate themselves to only providing baked goods founded on artisanal quality and nutritional health.
Daybreak uses 100% natural, home-grown yeast. We use All Natural Ingredients and a Twelve-Hour Fermentation Process to create a tastier, healthier, and easier to digest bread with a strong, classic crust. Each loaf is handcrafted with love. The natural yeast gives the bread wonderful nutritional value and a rich tangy taste.
Another advantage of our baking method is that the bread remains fresh and delicious up to One Week.
So there you have it! Now the Daybreak Bread team has already grown to include another family friend, Ivy, Francois’ schoolmate Xavier, and the lovely Marcella Felde. We’re continuing to perfect our art and explore new opportunities every day.
We hope you'll treat yourself to some seriously delicious (and healthy!) sourdough bread!
