Presenting the new crop of a coffee we have come to know well over the years. Produced in the town of Buremera by the MIG Cooperative, an organization established in 2004 to help farmers improve coffee quality and increase income. With members living throughout southern Rwanda’s Nayamagabe District, the MIG farmer group boasts the 1st place win in Rwanda’s first ever Cup of Excellence competition. Most of the 1,700 growers in the cooperative farm their own land and, in addition to coffee, grow crops such as soy bean, sweet potato, cassava and bananas. We are happy to continue the ongoing purchasing relationship we established with this cooperative; each year we look forward to the arrival of this consistently lush fruit-toned coffee.
