    Background:

    This special micro-lot was produced by 168 female farmers who grow coffee on small farms in the hills surrounding Karambi washing station, located in the Kigoma Sector of Huye District, in Rwanda’s Southern Province. The women are members of the Koakaka Cooperative, who own and manage Karambi along with two other nearby washing stations. Recently the women of Kigarama Village banded together and made the decision to process and market their coffee as their own. They named their association Rwamweru, which is one of the six zones that Koakaka operates within. We are very proud to purchase this coffee for the third year not only to support the female cooperative members but for the high quality they produce. We are tasting mandarin, nectarine, honey, milk chocolate and a touch of roasted almonds.
