The Kirasa mill is one of 13 mills that form the Akawa project, created to help producers escape the cycle of poverty in a sustainable and equitable way. Producers, striving for fairer remunerations and better living conditions, demanded a path towards prosperity. The location of Kirasa is breathtaking, surrounded by high climbing hills and right next to the Kirasa River. Many of the farmers in the region intercrop their plots with banana trees, creating not only shade for coffee trees but also a much needed food source for their family. Traditionally coffee produced at Kirasa was only washed, but this year Emile and his team implemented natural process. Special care is taken with sorting and drying to produce a clean and extraordinarily sweet cup.
