This special lot comes to us from the Women Coffee Extension (WCE) at the Mbizi Coffee Washing Station. Founded in 2017 by Aline Christine and Odette Uwamariya, the WCE is a women’s coffee cooperative focused on creating a space for female specialty coffee producers to have a stronger voice in Rwanda coffee production. Today, the WCE has over 700 female coffee producer members!
The WCE is focused on educating and empowering their members. They offer services such as family planning, nutrition programs, agricultural practices and even providing cows and goats to their members. These initiatives have changed the lives of many of their members.
