Abakundakawa ( “Those Who Love Coffee”) Coffee Cooperative, first established in 2004, is located in the northern mountainous region of the district of Gakenke in Rwanda.

It is perched at an altitude of 1700-1900 meters and is flanked by five distinct growing zones. Though the coffee cooperative was first established and formed in 2004 it is well known for courageously recognizing the first Women’s Only Farmer Association of its kind in Rwanda soon after inception.

Abakundakawa coffee cooperative is now represented by a women's coffee associations, Hingakawa (“Let’s Grow Coffee”).

The women of Hingakawa are both witnesses and victims to some of the darkest periods in Rwanda’s history - the 1994 Rwanda Genocide. Since this group includes both ethnic groups that clashed during that devastating period (Hutu and Tutsi), the women made a decision to make poverty their mutual enemy rather than each other - and with this sentiment, they have been able to move forward and heal a community, and a nation, through their leadership, courage and bravery.

A courage that is partially and significantly responsible for stitching the hearts and minds of a once torn society; a courage an entire global coffee industry could lay foundations of change upon.

The role of women in coffee can no longer be undermined, unnoticed, or gone un- incentivized.

How To Brew
