Story of the bean: Nyampinga, a name that translates to “Beautiful Women,” is a women's cooperative in southern Rwanda that has been training in agronomy and quality with our origin partners for 3 years.  This red bourbon lot is their first-ever export to the United States and it displays a beautiful balance of citrus and sweet notes that evolve throughout each sip.

The quality and care put into this coffee really shows. In the words of co-operative member Ntawiha Alivera: “I am a coffee grower...Now I have realized what I need to do to make my coffee better. I will be teaching my neighbors and my cooperative in Nyampinga so that our coffee can be improved for the market.”
