Producing Partner: Dukunde Kawa Musasa Co-Op
Our current limited release is a natural process, Bourbon varietal coffee from Dukunde Kawa Musasa Co-operative located in the Gakenke region of Rwanda. With notes of caramel, pear, bergamot, this coffee makes a delicate, clean cup when brewed on pour-over or drip, delivering a candy-like sweetness and pleasant acidity.
Found in the year 2000, the Dukunde Kawa Musasa Coop is now one of the largest operations in the country, featuring coffees grown at an elevation of 1,700 – 2,000 masl. The Coop focuses on the well being of its many producers. In 2006, they constructed two schools for the children of their farming partners as well as provided health insurance for most of its members.
The Coop lies in a mountainous, volcanic region of Northern Rwanda, which is home to 1 of 3 populations of endangered mountain Gorillas in the world.
Dukunde kawa means Let's Love Coffee.
