GAKENKE DISTRICT, RWANDA
Earl grey, raisin, cane sugar
This coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Mbilima mill located near a gorilla habitat in the Gakenke district of Rwanda. The Dukunde Kawa Cooperative has built three more wet mills and completed construction of their own dry mill. More than 80 percent of the cooperative workforce is women, and producer-members have used earnings to improve their standards of living with investments in livestock, access to healthcare, and programs to protect the environment. The quality of the coffee is also internationally recognized, consistently placing as one of the best in the Cup of the Excellence annual auction.
