Like many mothers in Rwanda, Epiphanie Mukashyaka lost her husband, a child, and many extended family members in the 1994 genocide. She faced with the responsibility of caring for her seven children and rebuilding their life. With a limited education and little money Epiphanie, whose husband was a coffee farmer, decided to continue to produce coffee with her local community. She saw speciality coffee as a way to provide sustainable improvement for the people of Rwanda by changing the focus from quantity to one of quality and so opening up Rwanda to the far higher-earning potential of specialty coffee market. Every year we make a commitment to buy from Epiphanie and her fellow producers in Rwanda for both single origin offerings and valuable high components of our blends. We do this because they are so unique and delicious and because as coffee consumers we need to support a viable economy for our suppliers so we can continue to enjoy drinking tasty affordable coffee for many years ahead.

QC day. Any changes in the roast profile of a particular bean can effect its solubility calling for tweaks in your brew recipe to get the most of out it. If you’re thinking your coffee is inconsistent it may be the roaster trying to improve what they are doing, so we think it’s really important to have open, frequent communication between the roaster and baristas.
