Hingakawa translates literally to "Let's grow coffee". The women of the Hingakawa Cooperative are rebuilding their community after the horrific events of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Through the cultivation of coffee, these woman are able to build economic and social security through their hard work. We loved this coffee immediately. The body and character of this coffee are exceptional.
