Origin Story

Nyampinga Cooperative

Nyampinga is an all-women’s cooperative located in Southern Rwanda near the country’s border with Burundi. In 2013, Bloomberg Philanthropies partnered with Sustainable Harvest to develop a non-for-profit training institute for women small-crop farmers. Now known as Sustainable Growers, it has enrolled over 40,000 women across Rwanda and Congo, and in 2021 enrolled women from three rural cooperatives in Tanzania. As part of this program, the women of Nyampinga have received training in agronomy, market access, and quality control, and the result of the farmer's hard work and enhanced knowledge of coffee production has resulted in a resounding improvement in cup quality in a short period of time.

Why We Love This Coffee

For the tenth year in a row, we are pleased to offer a coffee from the Nyampinga cooperative! Many of our customers have come to know the name Nyampinga, which the members of this cooperative have selected for their group. It has a nuanced translation in Rwanda’s native Kinyarwanda language that alludes to the coming of age of a young woman who is proud, beautiful, and respected in her community.

Good Coffee, Better Planet

Before working with Sustainable Growers, co-op members sold coffee cherries at low prices in the local market, but now they have established a cooperatively owned wet mill and formalized exporting procedures, securing the ability to be compensated more fairly for their hard work and the beautiful coffees that they produce.
