NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Rwanda Hingakawa Womens' Cooperative

Country of Origin: Rwanda
Rwanda Hingakawa Womens' Cooperative
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
Ten years after the dreadful events of 1994 across Rwanda, and despite terrible odds against success, the Abakundakawa-Rushashi Cooperative was formed..the first association of its kind in Rwanda. The other half of Abakundakawa-Rushashi is the Dakundakawa (“We love Coffee”) Association, also 100% run by women.
Both associations are located in the northern, mountainous regions of the Gakenke district, situated at 1700-1900 meters elevation and spread across
five distinct zones. This Rwanda Hingakawa Women's Coffee is a bourbon varietal, washed and sun dried. Tiny Rwanda is still a mostly agrarian society and is one of the
true jewels of the East African coffee sector, with stable climatological conditions, great volcanic soil, and highly-skilled professionals on the ground.
This coffee from Hingakawa is the real life representation of the sacrifice and resolve of the female cooperative members who were daring enough to plant
seeds of hope on the very same Rwanda hilltops where many lost their lives in a violent civil war. The two co-op associations employ both Hutu and Tutsi women, the two tribes who were infamously at the center of the heart wrenching conflict. After Rwanda's coffee producing farms were for a time left deserted, several organizations began to assist in restarting production. Hingakawa, as the name suggests, is more of a chant than it is a mere statement; it is a resolution to
fight against poverty rather than each other, and with this sentiment they have been able to move forward and heal their community through cooperation and leadership.
The journey of both the producers and product are fully traceable by a third party traceability verifier.
Light-medium roast notes are chocolate, stone fruit, black tea and modest acidity.

Badbeard's coffee is for the birds
One of our rarer blends incorporating Indian Peafeather and Sustainable Harvest Badbeard
"Just want to say thank you for the sample of the Java Taman Dadar. Wow, this is an amazing coffee!! The coffee is so smooth and mellow without any hints of bitterness at all. I enjoy the woodsy smokie notes that linger. It is now one of my favorites, I can see myself including a lb with every order. The EL Salvador -- Santa Leticia Estate is another great coffee it has these great grassy notes that accentuate the overall body of the coffee. I also got a lb of decafe and its is amazing how your decafe taste like regular. Thank you for your generous samples and the great coffee"
