The flat bottom of this handy brewer is the key to making a consistently delicious cup, forcing water to reach all crevices of the ground coffee and developing a richer flavor along the way.

Sourcing & Processing

The Agaseke Group in Karongi, Rwanda

This coffee comes to us from the lush volcanic highlands of Karongi in the Western Province of Rwanda. It was grown by a collective of women farmers, the Agaseke group, along the beautiful shores of Lake Kivu. Agaseke, a subgroup of the Kopakaki Cooperative, has almost 100 female members and its numbers are growing. To become a member, a farmer has to meet and maintain strict quality control standards. Their coffee trees have to be carefully cultivated and kept in top health.

Farmers pick their own coffee by hand and deliver it to Kopakaki's washing station. The coffee is sorted, pulped and dry fermented for 2 days, then rinsed and soaked for an additional 24 hours. It is carefully hand inspected before being moved to raised beds to dry in the sun for 10-15 days.

Agaseke Women Coffee Farmer's Group in Karongi, Rwanda

Agaseke, also known as Peace Baskets, are traditional Rwandan pointed top baskets, customarily weaved by women. Their carefully created decorations have deep cultural meaning and express a wife or mother's dedication to her family. The baskets are used to hold food and other gifts given to friends and family. They symbolize peace and goodwill within the community.
