This beautiful coffee from Coocamu Cooperative not only makes an extremely tasty complex cup, but also embodies so much of what we value in pursuing transformation in coffee. Like this coffee, Rwandas history is complex but is showing tremendous beauty. The engagement with the Coocamu cooperative was birthed out of a shared vision of our sourcing partners at Crop to Cup and the head of the Kopakama Cooperative. Crop to Cup wanted to pursue farming groups that had less access to US markets where the impact could be greatest. The director of Kopakama had a project recommendation called Coocamu that fit the bill perfectly and coincidently he had been supportive of as a passion project. The story goes on and is complex and beautiful but long story short, this cooperative is not only showing unbelievable cup quality in the their coffees but also in their eagerness to doggedly keep pursuing higher and higher quality in years to come. We are excited for what this coffee is today and only dream of what is to come!
This is no marketing gimmick. For every 12oz bag of Open Seas coffee you drink we are actually giving an average of 210 L of clean drinking water to real villagers in one of our source countries. That is over 35 days worth of potable water per bag. Through our 10-4Farmers Initiative we are investing 10% of our gross profits into sustainable water filtration systems for coffee farming communities and surrounding areas.
