This bright, fruity, classically Rwandan coffee comes to us from a special subset of the Kopakama Cooperative in Rwanda: Ejo Heza, which means “Bright Tomorrow”. The 400-member all-woman sub-cooperative, based in Rwanda’s Western Province, formed in 2011 with full support of the greater Kopakama co-op.

The Ejo Heza women manage a communal plot of coffee trees on a little over one hectare of land, as well as on their own family plots. Through the agronomy support of Kopakama, the farmers are constantly experimenting with and improving upon the quality and sustainability of their coffee farms, including planting beneficial shade trees.

In 2016, with the premiums earned from the sales of this coffee, Ejo Heza was able to found a microcredit savings and lending group to help member farmers continue to thrive.
