We’ve brought this exceptional Rwanda Peaberry coffee in for National Womens Day and in honor of celebrating women in coffee all around the world.
This light-medium roast is full of vibrant acidity lending to the red apple and orange notes of this coffee. The above average sweetness might be best identified as hints of brown sugar. The whole experience in the cup is off the charts with a medium body where the citrus shines through and sweetens as the cup cools down.
About the Farm:
This special lot comes to us from the Women Coffee Extension (WCE) at the Mbizi Coffee Washing Station. Founded in 2017 by
Aline Christine and Odette Uwamariya, the WCE is a women’s coffee cooperative focused on creating a space for female
specialty coffee producers to have a stronger voice in Rwanda coffee production. Today, the WCE has over 700 female coffee
The WCE is focused on educating and empowering their members. They offer services such as family planning, nutrition
programs, agricultural practices and even providing cows and goats to their members. These initiatives have changed the lives of
many of their members. Coffee production has increased from 3 kgs to 4 kgs per tree. The washing station moved from
producing 3 containers to 6 containers of green coffee.
Looking forward, WCE has goals to continue to expand programs for the benefit of their members. They are currently working on
Rain Forest certification in order to increase the premium of their coffee. In the future, they have goals to provide cows to all of
their members, cover health insurance for a majority of members, build a sewing center for young people in order to create new jobs and even build a Nursery School to help the kids in the area.
