"COOPAC Lake Kivu" Cooperative


Fully Washed / Roasted Medium-Light / Balanced Fruit + Orange + Raspberry


The COOPAC cooperative began in 2001 and is located on the mountain slopes in western Rwanda, above Lake Kivu. The cooperative started out with 110 members and has grown to 2,200 members from six areas within the country. The cooperative has three environmentally friendly washing stations that filter off waste by-products from coffee processing for use as fertilizer instead of emptying this waste into three nearby rivers and lakes. COOPAC also distributes shade trees to farmers in the districts of Nyamyumba and Kayove. These trees help prevent soil erosion and enhance organic coffee production as well as the forest ecosystem in these regions.
