The climate and volcanic soil of the Lake Kivu region of Rwanda give rise to deep cheery fruit tones in this wonderful coffee. Sourced from the Fair Trade certified COOPAC cooperative. COOPAC is committed to environmental and social sustainability in addition to producing high quality coffee. In the cup, expect something a little sweet and heavy with lemon and grapefruit.
COOPAC is a Fair Trade certified cooperative that began with 110 farmers in 2001, and today has over 2,200 members. COOPAC is committed to environmental and social sustainability in addition to producing high quality coffee. Waste by-products created during the coffee washing process are used to as fertilizer rather than discarded into the lake, and shade trees are distributed to farmers to prevent soil erosion. COOPAC has assisted in the construction of a school, health-care clinics, and roads and bridges in the community, and has a program to distribute cows and goats to the most productive farmers. COOPAC also provides farmers with an agricultural advisor to educate the growers about the latest production methods.
