About the coffee

This coffee comes from a coffee farm in the north of Rwanda that is run by women and is committed to women's education. Not only in the coffee world, but also politically, the East African country is at the forefront with 61.3 per cent women in national parliaments. The Red Bourbon variety has been processed naturally, allowing the coffee beans to completely absolve the fruity and sweet aroma of the fruit. We taste notes of blueberries, rhubarb and black tea. When you drink this coffee, you will taste it, the African woman power.

About the farm


Café des Mamas is grown and processed in Rwanda by Agnes Mukamushinja and her team at Nova Washing Station.

What many don't know: The coffee industry is a women's business, except that women tend to work behind the scenes, as pickers, sorters, farmers. Women usually get it right Since 2013, Agnes Mukamushinja has been the owner of Nova. She puts special focus on the quality of the coffees and the working conditions of her employees. With each passing year, Agnes is becoming more successful with this model and is working out more independence for herself and her team at the Nova Washing Station.

Agnes is convinced that women are as capable of running excellent farms. "Once the ladies are well off, the whole nation is well off!"

Agnes also supports her female employees outside of the coffee business. She teaches them how to tailor so that everyone is taken care of in the low season. She pays for treatment costs and provides electricity and water for neighbouring houses. You can find out more about the project on the Nova Coffee website.
