Product description

This specially prepared, natural process coffee comes from Dukunde Kawa Musasa Co-operative in the Gakenke region of Northern Rwanda. The co-op is one of Rwanda's largest with over 2,100 members, whose farms range between 1,700 and 2,000masl. 'Dukunde kawa' means "Let's Love Coffee" in the Kinyarwanda lanuage, in reference to the power of coffee to improve the lives of farmers in rural communities. This lot is Fairtrade & Rainforest Alliance certified.

THE PRODUCERS

Founded in 2000, The Dukunde Kawa Musasa Cooperative cultivates its high-quality coffee near a mountain gorilla habitat at around 1,800masl, in Rwanda's rugged North-West. By producing high-end coffee for the international market and employing a majority female workforce, the cooperative ensures maximum benefits to local families. In 2003, it built a washing station with funds provided by the Rwandan ministry of defense. In exchange for this support, the Dukunde Kawa donates 10 percent of its net profits annually to fund the construction of other washing stations throughout Rwanda.

Fairtrade Certified since 2004, Dukunde Kawa secures a high standard of living for Rwandan farmers by ensuring access to an economically and environmentally sustainable coffee industry.

Eighty percent of Dukunde Kawa's producers are women. Each member has been able to buy a farm animal, and many now have health insurance for the first time. Dukunde Kawa also constructed 2 schools for local children in 2006 and provides members with long-term credit at no interest. Many farmers renovated their homes and now all members’ homes have tile rather than grass roofs.

THE PROCESS

Ripe cherries are hand sorted and floated to separate by density, selecting only the highest quality for processing. The cherries are then dried in the sun on raised African beds for 20-25 days.
