Why We Love This Coffee

This coffee was initially brought to our attention by Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian, through her company JNP Coffee. Founded in 2012, JNP Coffee focuses on gender equity in East Africa by educating women farmers on high-quality coffee production and providing them with leadership and financial literacy trainings. JNP Coffee pays premiums to women farmers to promote quality and help ensure sustainability.

For the third year in a row we are featuring a coffee from the Turihamwe washing station. This year’s lot has a spicy, floral, and jammy flavor profile.

Good Coffee, Better Planet

Turihamwe, which means “together we can” in Kirundi, is Burundi’s first washing station built and owned by women farmers. The plant processes coffee for women producers of the Burundi chapter of the International Women’s Coffee Association, the first African chapter of IWCA to become a legally recognized entity. The Burundi chapter of the IWCA began with a group of eight women representing Burundi's coffee growing regions, transportation, exportation and quality assessment sectors. The IWCA provides access to business opportunities in the coffee industry, as well as social, economic and political empowerment for women in coffee communities around the world.
