Rwanda Hingakawa Women's Cooperative

Rwanda- Hingakawa Women's Cooperative


Our newest offering from Rwanda grows in the volcanic mountains of the northern Gakenke District by female co-op Abakundakawa - Hingakawa Women’s Coffee.


Meaning “Those Who Love Coffee”, Abakundakawa is a democratically-elected cooperative made up of more than two thousand female growers. The co-op is integral to the region’s economy as it aims to fight poverty by building infrastructure and providing resources like fresh water. Its recognition of Rwanda’s first Women’s Only Farmer Association and unity of female coffee growers also prove its power in overcoming patriarchal leadership.


Growers handpick their coffee cherries before the fruit is removed, whereafter the beans are washed and dried in sunlight. The resulting beans are balanced, bright, and tangy, a match for those already missing summer.
