DESCRIPTION

 

Nyamyumba station was built along the high-altitude hills of the Congo Nile Trail. The trail stretches 227 kilometers and the Nyamyumba section features beautiful landscapes of rolling hills and views of the clear waters of Lake Kivu. The land around Nyamyumba is also part of the Gishwati National Forest.

 

This coffee comes through Sucafina and their partners at Rwacof in Rwanda. Rwacof invests heavily in farmer training and good agricultural practices, primarily through Kittel's sustainability partner, the Kahawatu Foundation. Rwacof’s Farmer Field School shares information with all their producer partners on best agricultural practices, conservation tactics, the importance of picking only ripe cherry and more. Furthermore, Rwacof invests significant focus and resources on improving the financial situation of the farmers with whom they work.

 

THE SUCAFINA FARMGATE INITIATIVE  

This coffee is part of Kittel's partnership with Sucafina North America. Within the framework of Sucafina's Farmgate Initiative, Kittel donates 5¢ USD for every pound of coffee we buy through them. Using these funds, Rwacof has negotiated favorable rates with a wide-reaching African bank equipping farmers with zero-fee accounts that have no monthly account maintenance fees, no transfer costs and no withdrawal costs. Their new bank accounts not only mean more secure storage for their money, but it makes them bankable and eligible for other credit lines, often for the first time.
