Rwanda Kivu Lake Coopac Mirco-lot - Natural


Lake Kivu is located in Rwanda. The climate of the lake and the volcanic soil come together in some magical way to make deep cherry fruit tones in these lovely coffees. This mirco-lot coffee is grown at extremely high elevations - 1,500-1,900 metres above sea level. High altitude coffees take longer to ripen, which results in more complex flavors, aromas and sweetness.

  • COOPAC Farmers Union

    COOPAC is a Fair Trade certified cooperative that began with 110 farmers in 2001, and today has over 2,200 members. COOPAC is committed to environmental and social sustainability in addition to producing high quality coffee. Waste by-products created during the coffee washing process are used to as fertilizer rather than discarded into the lake, and shade trees are distributed to farmers to prevent soil erosion. COOPAC has assisted in the construction of a school, health-care clinics, and roads and bridges in the community, and has a program to distribute cows and goats to the most productive farmers. COOPAC also provides farmers with an agricultural advisor to educate the growers about the latest production methods.
