The Gorilla Fund has turned into our Single Origin Coffee from Rwanda.
We are happy to report that the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International has grown with much success with their adoption by the Ellen Fund. Together they continue amazing work for the survival of mountain Gorillas, while we continue to support the Rwanda Coffee Farmers at the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative, who stewardship of their land where the gorillas thrive.
Founded and certified Fairtrade in 2004, The Dukunde Kawa Cooperative cultivates its high-quality coffee in the soil just near the mountain gorilla habitat in Musasa, central Rwanda. Our partnership was forged at its inception and has helped to increase the standard of living for the Rwandan farmers. Working together as a cooperative, the members of Dukunde Kawa have been able to increase the quality of their coffee and provide support for their communities and the biodiversity of their homeland.
