This direct trade micro lot coffee from the Kinyovu Wash Station is an IWCA certified women produced coffee. The International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA) leads women’s empowerment in the international coffee industry by supporting and growing a network of self-organized, self-governing, women-led chapters across the globe.
This coffee is made up of many small farms. Many times, a farmer may only have 25-50 coffee trees per farm. The coffee cherries are handpicked every morning, sorted and delivered to the washing stations (wet mills) in the afternoon and throughout the early evening. Each farmer’s delivery is processed daily, thus producing micro-lots that can be traced to a specific hill. The results of such a caring process are really phenomenal in the cup. This really is a cup that shines with bright pineapple and sweet acidity but also leaves you with lingering flavors of toffee and hints of chocolate. Not only is this a must try coffee, but the social impact of your purchase really makes a difference.
