___________________________________________ The Rwanda Dukunde Kawa Musasa is an outstanding coffee that is complex, balanced, and very sweet. A delicious and versatile coffee, we tasted notes of honey, apricot, macadamia nut and toffee.
FARM STORY ___________________________________________ In 2012 the Dukunde Kawa co-op won the prestigious Sustainability Award from the Specialty Coffee Association of America for its efforts in realizing the benefits of shade-grown coffee and restorative replanting. The coop is also Fair Trade certified, using the premiums its coffee commands to invest in its farmers, the cooperative, and the community. Eighty percent of Dukunde Kawa’s members are women; they market their coffee separately as women-grown coffee, garnering earnings that go toward child education and improvements that directly affect the lives of community members. The women have also established a sewing association and have implemented a program to produce and export traditional Rwandan baskets, broadening the co-op’s trade skills.
