More info about the coffee
This delicious, fruit and chocolate-infused coffee begins it's journey to your cup near Lake Kivu, processed on the steep, beautiful volcanic mountainside which surrounds. There it is fully washed, then and sun dried on raised screens above the breathtaking lake. From there, it continues its journey to our roastery, and finally, your cup.
More info about this farm
COOPAC is a Rwandan growing cooperative with over 8,000 members and a full suite of social and environmental sustainability programs. Founded by Emmanuel Rwakagara in 2001 with just 110 members, the now expanded cooperative includes over 50 washing stations along Lake Kivu, and exports 150 containers of skillfully-processed, Fair Trade Certified coffee annually.
Committed to environmental and social sustainability, COOPAC has integrated sustainable and ethical practices into its coffee, from the processing of its beans to the impact of their trade. Shade tree saplings and agroforestry education are provided for its members (it's fair to say we're big fans here). Meanwhile, COOPAC bolsters its community with nutrition, infrastructure, and education programs, leaving a positive impact on the community and environment which bring these delicious beans to your door.
