The Maraba Abahuzamugambi cooperative formed in the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide to rebuild lives through coffee farming. In its early years, many Rwandan farmers lacked access to wet mills and were forced to sell their cherries to low-paying middlemen. In 2002, with the help of social and economic projects funded by USAID, the cooperative was able to construct their own wet mills, dramatically increasing both their coffee quality and prices paid to farmers. This inspiring story of dedication and resilience can be tasted in the cup, where you’ll find dynamic flavors of dried apricot, blood orange and blackcurrant.
