  • It's far easier drinking this amazing coffee than pronouncing its name! Produced by an ALL-WOMEN CO-OPERATIVE, we're donating 10% of all our sales of this bean to the UK Endometriosis Charity. Please tell everyone about this amazing organisation.


    This is a typically floral Rwandan bean, with delicious toffee caramel and citrus lemon and lime notes and a silky body. We'd advise getting your nose well into your newly opened packet of freshly roasted Twongerekawa Coko and having a good sniff. You'll get that unmistakable fruitiness of Rwandan coffee. If you're new to speciality coffee you'll be really surprised at how sweet coffee can be. And if you're a connoisseur, then you'll be drooling with expectation. This incredibly high-grown Rwandan Arabica (over 2000 metres above sea level!) is truly wonderful.

    Process - Fully washed
    Altitude - 2000 - 2200 masl
    Location - Northern Province, Gakenke District

    In the Northern District of Rwanda, The Twongerekawa Coko Cooperative is located In the highest parts of the Gakenke District and represents 138 small-holder members in the region.

    in 2009, 15 coffee farmers in Coko agreed to work together to improve quality, and the Twongerekawa Coko Cooperative was formed. The co-operative in run by the small, mainly female Twongerekawa Coko cooperative society. Coffee from Coko is from an unusually high altitude (2000+ masl), which helps produce slowly ripened, juicy beans that have both a typically Rwandan black tea-like finish and sweet taste notes of ripe citrus. A co-operative with a history of investing in women, development and ways to mitigate poverty, its members have not only seen the quality of their coffee improve, but their local communities as well.

    Rwanda is blessed with ideal coffee growing conditions that include high altitude, regular rainfall, volcanic soils with good organic structure and an abundance of the Bourbon varietal. The vast majority of Rwandan coffee is produced by smallholders of which there are thought to be around half a million, with parcels of land often not much larger than just one hectare per family, with an average of approximately 180 trees each.
