Process: Fully washed
Description: This special micro lot was produced by a group of women who are members of the Koakaka Cooperative, located in the Southern Province of Rwanda, at the edge of the Nyungwe rainforest.
In the local Kinyarwanda language, Koakaka stands for the ‘Coffee Growers’ Cooperative of Karaba’. The cooperative was established in 2002, with three farmers associations merging together (Karama, Kiyamakara and Rukondo). The majority of Koakaka’s members are very small-scale producers who typically own less than a quarter of a hectare of land on which they cultivate an average of only 300 trees, alongside other subsistence food crops such as maize and beans.
The cooperative has two fully operational washing stations, Karambi, in Huey, and Muganza, in Nyagambe. They are also currently building a third washing station called Mbazi which is located just over the border of Nyagambe (near Buf Cafe’s washing stations).
This particular lot was processed at the Karambi washing station which was established in 2003. This washing station has around 1,316 members, 292 (22%) of which are women.
