Women's Coffee

Mayogi's exceptional women's coffee is a coffee that we turn to again and again as an example of the high quality and expertise that are hallmarks of our women's coffee program. We love the deep stonefruit notes in this coffee—think black cherry, apricot and plum. Red grape comes through as well as sweet molasses and brown sugar. This is an excellent coffee to feature as a single origin offering!

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Founded in 2010, the Mayogi Cooperative is located in Gicumbi District of the Northern Province of Rwanda which features an ideal climate for strong flowering leading to highly productive trees. For many years, the cooperative was comprised of only 108 farmers. Then, in 2017, 270 women graduates of Sustainable Growers' training program joined the cooperative. With this newfound strength in numbers, the cooperative immediately achieved a significant milestone: In 2018, they placed second in the Rwanda Cup of Excellence with a score of 90.06.
