The story of triumph over adversity rings true, when you learn the mill’s name Rusekabuye translates to ‘man who hits stone with head and breaks it into one thousand pieces’. Hilare, one of the owners of Rusekabuy was lobbied by producers in the region to build the station after he faced resistance by the only mill owner in the town not to proceed. As the newest mill of 13 established by the Akawa Project, Rusekabuye helps producers escape the cycle of poverty in a sustainable and equitable way, creating fairer remunerations and better living conditions. They do this by helping the producers follow UTZ certification standards, focusing on good agricultural practices, environmental responsibility and social equity. The results of this important work shows in the quality of the coffee harvested that has exceeded our expectations. This coffee has a super-sweet fruit juice quality and smooth creamy mouthfeel.
Tastes of raisins, stone fruits and butterscotch.
