"This special lot from the Twongere Kawa Coko Cooperative's 2018 harvest is floral, bright and sweet; and the fact that it comes from a small, fairtrade, women-run cooperative makes it that much sweeter. Their president, Therese Nyrangwabije, will be the first to tell you that they have a majority female membership base. In her own words "I set up the cooperative to help local women, and even today, we have a majority of female members here. In Rwanda, it's the women who are most involved in their households- so you help them, you help their whole family. It makes me very proud to be one of the few female cooperative presidents, but it's something I'd like to see change in the future. During my working life, I've defied expectations to earn the trust and respect of my colleagues and the community, so it's something I'd like to see happen for the women of the cooperative too."  – Notes from our importer, Crop to Cup
