This special lot comes to us from the Women Coffee Extension (WCE) at the Mbizi Coffee Washing Station. Founded in 2017 by Aline Christine and Odette Uwamariya, the WCE is a women's coffee cooperative focused on creating a space for female specialty coffee producers to have a stronger voice in Rwanda coffee production. Today, the WCE has over 700 female coffee producer members! The WCE focused on educating and empowering its members. They offer services such as family planning, nutrition programs, agricultural practices, and even providing cows and goats to their members. These initiatives have changed the lives of many of their members. Coffee production has increased from 3 kgs to 4 kgs per tree. The washing station moved from producing three containers to 6 containers of green coffee. WCE's goal is to continue expanding programs that benefit its members. They are currently working on Rain Forest certification to increase the premium of their coffee.

I chose this coffee because of the good that the WCE is doing and because of the quality and flavors of this coffee. I enjoyed notes of jam, blackberry, and grape in this coffee. I hope you enjoy this coffee as much as I do.
