At the age of 57, Andre Hakizimana has worked in coffee for 40 years. As well as running one of the largest and most celebrated coffee farms in Rwanda, he is also a founding member and former president of the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative: a coffee farming co-op in Rwanda’s Northern Province. Andre works 100% organically, using his livestock’s manure to fertilise his coffee crop, and he has planted pumpkin and banana trees to reduce erosion and keep the soil healthy and moist. Andre’s approach to farming and work at Dukunde Kawa shows his dedication to sustainable investment in his family’s future, community, and the environment.

Andre has become a standard-bearer for what Rwandan coffee can be. This exceptional coffee perfectly represents the care and passion that he puts into his craft. Expect a vibrant and juicy cup with apple, honey, and chamomile notes. This coffee is good, seriously good. It represents a coffee savant at the height of his powers. This is a very rare and special micro-lot from one of the finest coffee farmers in Rwanda. Get in quick! It won’t be on our shelves for long.
