Umuko Coffee brings us Rwanda Gasharu Natural for year 3. A wonderfully sweet cup that reminds us of Strawberry, Rhubarb, and Shortcake. Umuko has a special connection with the Gasharu farm and processing facility.

Gahsaru employees 240-300 women annually and works with 1650 smallholder coffee producers.

Umuko Coffee and the Rusatira’s family has more than 40 years of coffee growing and processing experience within Rwanda. Their experiences lead them to found Umuko to better support coffee producers by providing them with a voice, transparency, and a larger share of the profits their coffees generate. Maintaining ownership within Rwanda is also a critical function of this group.

“Our desire to empower coffee farming communities by disrupting a system that takes so much more than it gives while bringing exceptional coffee to the American market is the force that drives this enterprise.”

They believe thriving communities will produce the best coffees. We could not agree more!
