This 1,200kg micro-lot was produced by 48 smallholder coffee producers, who farm in the hills surrounding Sovu washing station, located in the Huye Sector of Huye District, in Rwanda’s Southern Province. The farmers are members of Nyakagezi Farmers’ Group, which is a smaller association within the Abahuzamugambi Ba Kawa Maraba Cooperative, who own and manage Sovu along with three other washing stations. Since its formation, the cooperative has grown to encompass various communities of coffee growers in the Huye District. Initially founded by just 220 growers, Maraba has grown to 1,469 members. The cooperative is member-owned, and its profits are divided between members or reinvested into shared infrastructure, resources and training. In an effort to continuously assist members to improve the yield and quality of their coffees, the cooperative provides agronomy training and access to discounted fertilisers and organic pesticides. Maraba has consistently been recognised for quality including numerous Cup of Excellence awards since 2008.
