About this coffee
In this region, coffee has been cultivated, almost exclusively, by small producers since 1950s. Today, virtually every farm on the mountain has become a coffee-producing unit and what was once one of the poorest and most isolated areas of Guatemala is vibrant and growing. Rainy and cloudy, Oriente is located on a former volcanic range. Its soil is made of metamorphic rock: balanced in minerals and quite different from soils in regions which have seen volcanic activity since coffee was first planted. In the village of Pueblo Nuevo Viñas, Department of Santa Rosa, Guatemala, between the Tecuamburro and Pacaya volcanoes is located farm Idolia.

About This Coffee
Coffee comprises an impressive 65% of Rwanda’s exports and the country is stabilizing economically partially due to the investment of specialty coffee. This particular Rwandan coffee is named for the Kigeyo washing station owned by COOPAC, a coffee co-op in Rwanda dedicated to improving the coffee quality in the Kivu region of Rwanda. This commitment to quality shows in the cleanness of this Rwanda Kigeyo.
Founded by Emmanuel Rwakagara in 2001, COOPAC began with 1,100 member farmers and a single washing station. Since 2001, COOPAC has doubled their membership and expanded to 50 washing stations. Because of ideal growing conditions, a commitment to quality coffee, and high standards for coffee growing and processing, COOPAC is producing some of the finest Rwandan coffees available.
Along with dedication to quality coffee, COOPAC is currently providing shade tree saplings and agroforestry education to all its members, strictly adhering to organic practices. COOPAC’s ongoing support of Fair Trade, community-based initiatives is enabling the construction of schools, health-care clinics, roads, and bridges as well as aiding development programs for local women and youth.

About this coffee
This is another mind blowing coffee. First of all, I love the pacamara cultivar. It’s a hybrid of two other coffee cultivar; Pacas and the Maragogype. A well done pacamara has floral, citrus, notes, creamy, sweet body, and an extremely pleasant aftertaste. So, take this already amazing coffee varetal and add a honey processing method to it and you have a combination bound for success.
Abel and his brother Fredy were helped by Graciano Cruz, a coffee producer focused on helping farmers in El Salvador and Panama produce quality coffee that is able to fetch a high price on the market. They began working with Abel and Fredy four years ago and it’s safe to say the coffee has gotten better year after year.
This is an exciting coffee that we were only able to obtain six bags of. It won’t be around long so be sure to grab some before it’s too late.
