This new Rwanda Organic bean comes from the base of volcanoes in the Northern Province. Abakundakawa which means 'those who love coffee', is a cooperative founded in 1999 that has made lots of changes in the local community. Even giving all the members of the cooperative access to health insurance. This coop offers one of the best beans in Rwanda and is known for pioneering the organic conversion program in the country.

The Hingakawa Women's Association is also a part of Abakundakawa. These women organized themselves into women empowerment organizations and are slowly helping Rwanda women's emancipation and position in society climb. Hingakawa means "let us grow coffee" in Kinyarwanda. The women who are in the Abakundakawa cooperative are also the heads of their families. They carefully select and process coffee beans and fetch special premiums with extra incomes that support themselves and their families.

Cupping notes: Pineapple, lemon verbena, grapefruit, berry, and honey sweetness.

Excellent Coffee. It has made my top 10 if not top 5 list. Best Coffee I've had in a long time. Different than anything I've had in a while. Medium Roast. Most of the chafe didn't come off.

Bruce W Hermann Roasted this into the second crack. Resulted in a complex rich flavor. Will probably stop at the first of the second crack to try to brighten the flavor. Definitely one of my favorites.

I have been experimenting with different beans, different continents of origin, and this Rwanda organic coffee is one of the top two beans I enjoy. I use an electric hot air roaster, and like to roast this to a medium or medium dark roast.

This is the first time I've ordered green coffee, and love how this tastes. I'm not sure how to tell when it is at the perfect spot, as I'm roasting the coffee on a gas grill and roasting to a dark roast, but I am very much enjoying both the process and what I've roasted so far. The Rwanda Organic Abakundakawa Rushashi coffee is definitely a good one for a beginner.
