Coffee is a collaborative effort and this lot is a great reflection of the spirit of the Specialty Coffee Community. In 2009 56 women in Rwanda founded the Gisuma Cooperative as a way to improve their lives. They've grown the Coop, and with technical assistance in management and agricultural best practices from Importer/Exporter Sustainable Harvest they've been able to earn higher prices for their coffees, and reinvest in the Coop.
