A tasty lot from a fully women-run group!
ruby red, white tea, honey
...in this coffee.
This is our first time sourcing Kungahara which means “be rich” in Kinyarwanda. Kungahara is made up of a group of over 200 female producers who bring their harvests to the Bwishaza cooperative to be processed. Not only do these women manage their ~.5 hectare farms, most are also busy caring for their children and keeping food on the table. Their hard work and drive for quality yields some pretty fantastic results and we are grateful to be able to share this group’s coffee with you.
Fresh off the grind we are smelling lovely floral and honey notes. The honey-sweet aromatics translate into the cup as well and are joined by ruby red grapefruit and a crisp white tea-like finish. We are really impressed with how tasty this lot is and think you will be too! Enjoy!
Brew Time: 24-26s

We buy, roast, and sell coffee. On a surface level, this sounds simple enough. But buying coffee in a way we are proud of and in a way that those who buy our coffee are proud of is often complex, challenging, and hard work. We find ourselves on a continuum of buying and selling that progresses towards more sustainable, meaningful and equitable relationships. The chart below provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey.
