Rwanda Gakenke Abakundakawa Co-op
The Abakundakawa cooperative consists of nearly 2000 independent farmers, nearly 40% of whom are women who head households, in the northern mountains of Rwanda in the Gakenke district. With the help of infrastructure improvements from USAID, this community has gained a reputation for producing interesting and complex, high quality Fair Trade coffees. In 2011 a lot from this coop ranked amongst the best coffees the country in the Rwanda Cup of Excellence competition. We are delighted by this year's general lot with it's silky smooth body and a complex mingling of clove, tart pomegranate, and brown sugar in the cup.Buy it here or in one of our cafes.
