Rwanda Musasa

Harvested between March and June, this bourbon coffee is sourced from a collective of family owned farms located near the Musasa mill in the Gakenke District of Rwanda. Grown between 1,500 – 2,000 feet on volcanic loam soil, this coffee is fully washed and then dried in raised beds. Sweet flavors of earl grey tea, bosc pear and brown sugar make for a delicious and smooth cup.

In 2000, the Dakunda Kawa Cooperative was formed, with enough funds to build their first wet mill. They have since built another three wet mills and one dry mill. The quality of this coffee has been recognized  world wide, consistently placing as one of the best in the Cup of the Excellence annual auction.

Multiple sustainability-minded organizations, including Thanksgiving Coffee Company, have supported the Cooperative’s efforts to elevate living standards by investing in livestock, better access to healthcare and environmental protection programs. The project “Responding to Climate Change: Building Community-Based Reliance” was awarded the 2012 Sustainability Award from The Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA)
