Rwanda Pea Berry

Abakundakawa, or “those who love coffee,” is a cooperative founded in 1999 in the Northern provinces of Rwanda.  The cooperative invests heavily in programs and infrastructure for its members, including a new community center for some of the farmers furthest from the mills. The bourbon coffee that they produce is washed, fermented for 36 hours, hand sorted, and dried on raised beds. The pulp is distributed back to farmers for use as compost. It is roasted to perfection with notes of tea, peach, and a hint of tangerine.
