Washed - Red Bourbon - Northern Province

This special micro lot was produced by a group of women who are members of the Dukunde Kawa cooperative. This group of women recently banded together to created an association, and made the decision to seperate their coffee and market it as their own. To distinguish their coffee and ensure it is processed separately, the women have organised to deliver on specific days of the week.

They own small farms near the Mbilima cooperative, which is located in the rugged Northwest in the town of Musasa, at around 2,020 metres above sea level, making it one of Rwanda’s highest washing stations. Close to the famous Virunga (Volcanoes) National Park, this part of the world has the mineral-rich soil and lush environment that is well-suited to specialty coffee.

By Rwandan standards, the Mbilima washing station is quite small, representing only 274 local producers in the area, 60 of which are women.
