This sweet and exceptionally clean coffee hails from the Ngozi Province of Burundi, a fertile coffee-growing region along the Rwandan border, where it was produced exclusively by women in the local chapter of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA). This group of women, who built their own wet mill by pooling their premiums, refers to themselves as Turihamwe Turashobora, which translates to “Together, we can!” in Kirundi.
At first sip, the coffee presents the honeyed, ripe, stone-fruit sweetness typical of excellent, clean coffees from East Africa. But the hard work of the women of Turihamwe is increasingly apparent as the cup cools: complex and delicate flavors such as melon, orange blossom, rosewater, and vanilla unfurl and lengthen in the aftertaste.
We’re proud to source this coffee through Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian of JNP Coffee, whose work to prioritize gender equity, financial literacy, and community empowerment in Burundi has a tangible and meaningful impact on the communities she touches.
