About this coffee: 

The proud women farmers of Turihamwe coffee truly embody the spirit of entrepreneurship. Some of the women were even founding members of the IWCA Burundi Chapter. They have been growing coffee for years and have devoted themselves to attaining quality and to building a sustainable future for their families and their community, a future that they see is possible because of their partnership with JNP Coffee. For several years they worked together, studied together, and saved their Dushime® premiums together. Soon they had enough money to build their own wet mill, which they did themselves! Now they control the quality of their coffee beyond the harvest and through the critical processing steps. The name Turihamwe was chosen by the women themselves. It means "together" in Kirundi.
