This bright, fruity, citric, smooth finish coffee comes from COCAGI Cooperative in the Rusizi district of Western Province, Rwanda. This is a woman run portion of the cooperative that produces this special microlot coffee, grown at an altitude of 1600 to 1800 meters. It is fully washed and dried on elevated beds to ensure even drying throughout. This coffee is proud to have both the Fairtrade certification, as well as the Rainforest Alliance certification.

COCAGI, founded in 2004, is one of Rwanda’s oldest cooperatives and has received dozens of awards and certificates over its 16+ years. They were one of the early cooperatives established by the PEARL project, which launched Rwanda’s transformation into a specialty coffee producer by introducing regional washing stations. Japhet, now COCAGI’s executive director, remembers the early days of the cooperative. Today the cooperative boasts an impressive infrastructure with a well maintained cherry reception area, two MacKinnon depulping machines, long grading channels, seven fermentation tanks, large shaded sorting areas, vast areas with rows of raised drying beds and a headquarters equipped with a cupping lab and modern computer equipment for office operations. In 2018 they established their first women’s group, “Agasaro”, and today they have added a second one named “Susuruka”.

The cooperative is proud of its efforts to train women to be official cuppers for the cooperative and its projects to protect the surrounding environment.

The Bourbon varieties consist of:  BM 139, RAB C15, Jackson 2/1257 .
