    First roast on: 1st March, 2023.

    This year's special edition of "Café des Mamas" comes with four unique designs, honoring four women who have made unique contributions to women's rights and the women's movement. Each design features the Café des Mamas logo, either individually or as a set with all four designs.

    This roast comes from the Nova "Café des Mamas" project, a coffee farm in northern Rwanda led by women who are dedicated to women's education. This Bourbon lot is washed, and at Café des Mamas, you can taste the distinct power of Rwandan women.

    About the coffee

    Fruity filter roast from Rwanda, produced only by women.

    Agnes Mukamushinja is one of the many women supported by the Café des Mamas women's project in Rwanda. She works at the Nova Washing Station, one of several coffee washing stations operated by the Café des Mamas women's project.

    As a member of the cooperative, Agnes Mukamushinja is part of a network of women who grow, harvest, process, and market coffee beans. The women also learn basic business skills to sell their products and increase their income. Through her work at the Nova Washing Station, Agnes Mukamushinja can improve her income while contributing to the cultivation and processing of high-quality coffee.

    The Café des Mamas women's project works closely with the women at the coffee washing stations to ensure that they are paid fairly and have access to training and resources to improve their skills and knowledge of coffee cultivation and processing. By supporting women at the coffee washing stations, the project also helps to strengthen the communities where the women live and work.

    Overall, the Café des Mamas women's project has a positive impact on women in Rwanda and makes an important contribution to the women's movement in the country.

    About the farm

    Café des Mamas is grown and processed in Rwanda by Agnes Mukamushinja and her team at the Nova Washing Station. The coffee industry is a women's business, many people don't know that, as women usually work more behind the scenes, as pickers, sorters, farmers. Women usually do the really hard jobs and are paid the least.

    The Rwandan woman has been the owner of Nova since 2013. She puts special focus on the quality of the coffees and the working conditions of her employees. With each year, Agnes becomes successful with this model and works out more independence for herself and her team at the Nova Washing Station.

    It is different at Nova Station, where even the people at the top are female. Agnes is convinced that women are at least as capable of running excellent farms. "Once the ladies are well off, the whole nation is well off!"

    She supports her female employees outside of the coffee business, teaching them tailoring so that everyone is taken care of in the off-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.

    Bloody Good Coffee

    - SINCE 2002

    Bloody Good Filter

    Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our filter coffees to bring out this acidity and develop the natural sweetness.

    In developing a profile for a filter roast, our roasting team takes a light-handed approach, roasting much more gently than in an espresso roast. Here, the aim is to respect and highlight the natural flavours of the coffee itself, and to let its terroir shine through.
