Kigeyo Rwanda Washed

Kigeyo Rwanda Washed

from 12.00

COOPAC is a Fair Trade–certified cooperative located near Lake Kivu on the steep slopes of volcanic mountains. COOPAC began with 110 farmers in April 2001, and currently has 8,000 members contributing coffee.

KODUKAK is a secondary group formed in 2015 and representing 990 farmers from the Kigeyo sector. These producers harvest ripe cherries and deliver them to the Kigeyo Washing Station, where they are depulped the same day as receipt. The coffee is fermented dry for 12 hours, then underwater for 24, followed by multiple washings to remove the mucilage. The beans are dried in mechanical dryers and on raised beds for 2–3 weeks.

Waste by-products from processing are used as fertilizer rather than discarded into the lake, and shade trees are distributed to farmers to prevent soil erosion. COOPAC has assisted in the construction of a school, health-care clinics, and roads and bridges in the community.

This coffee was imported and brought to us by our friends at Cafe Imports.
