Rwanda Musasa Mbilima Dukunde Kawa Triple Washed
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Rwanda Musasa Mbilima Dukunde Kawa Triple Washed Crown Jewel is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Mbilima mill located near a gorilla habitat in the Gakenke district of Rwanda.  Farmer plots are so small that measurements are based on the numbers of trees, not the area of land. Farmers who process their coffee at the Mbilima mill are members of the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative, which started in 2000 with enough funds to build one wet mill.  In the following years, the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative has built three more wet mills(including the Mbilima mill) and completed construction of their own dry mill. More than 80 percent of the cooperative workforce is women, and producer-members have used earnings to improve their standards of living with investments in livestock, access to healthcare, and programs to protect the environment, which won the SCAA 2012 Sustainability Award.  The quality of the coffee is also internationally recognized, consistently placing as one of the best in the Cup of the Excellence auction each year.

Tanzania Ngorongoro Vohora Family Fully Washed Peaberry
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Since 1971, the Vohora’s have owned about 1000 acres of farmland on the southern exterior slopes of the Ngorongoro caldera near the town of Karatu in Tanzania’s lush rift valley. The farms possess Rainforest Alliance certificate, and the family and their 50+ full-time employees on the farm have done a remarkable job of upkeep and preservation of natural beauty while also running a thriving coffee business. They are diversifying into Macadamia, provide temporary housing for harvest labor, and even supply land on the farm for local smallholders to grow beans – a mutually beneficial crop as the legumes fix nitrogen in the soil, a critical step in a healthy cycle of crops.

The coffees the Vohora family produce achieve consistently high quality from year-to-year despite a number of uncommon obstacles. Water shortages prompted new rainwater basins at critical high points on the farm a few years ago. Animal damage of the coffee trees is frequent and traumatic – usually, it’s the water buffalo that are most destructive in herds, though you can catch the sounds of an occasional elephant at night, making its way through the forest.

The Java coffee is originally from West Sumatra, the trade name is Java Preanger. It was established by Dutch Colonial in the 19th century when the Dutch ruled in the southern area of the province of West Java. The product was traded in large fields in Bandung (the Capital city of West Java), named Preanger Field. Nowadays, the trading place has been changed and developed to be one of the famous hotel in Bandung called Preanger Hotel and the coffee which is grown around the mountains of West Java area traded field is called Preanger Java Arabica. 

After 1945, Indonesians were more interested in growing tea instead of coffee. They changed most of Java coffee fields to tea and they moved coffee fields to East Java area, which most of Java coffee come from. But in the last 5 years, Java Preanger was rejuvenated at Pengalengan Mountain area, West. Now, Java Preanger is spreading across small farms with a total area of 60Ha and an annual production of 60 metric tonnes.
