Rwanda Gisenyi Coopac

In the area nearby Lake Kivu we already bought a lot of knock out coffee’s. This one, traded by Cafe Imports, is less savory than the Vunga and Karambi, we did earlier in the season. Nice for a change, and once again a proof that well grown and processed African washed coffee’s are the best of the class.

COOPAC is a fair trade certified cooperative located near Lake Kivu on the steep slopes of volcanic mountains. COOPAC began with 110 farmers in April 2001, and currently has 8,000 members contributing coffee from Ack, Ubuzima, Tuzamurane, Kopabm, Abakundakurima and Abanyamurava. With over 50 washing stations along the northern landscape of Lake Kivu, COOPAC exports 150 containers of Fair Trade certified coffee annually.

The variety is a mix of Bourbon and (the less known) Mayaguez.
