Coffee roaster Ian visited Ishema Women’s Wet Mill in Rwanda in 2015:
Rwanda Ishema Women’s is a balanced coffee with creamy finish.
The Ishema Washing Station was set up in 2014 and is run entirely by 30 women. Ishema has four goals:
1) Create jobs for women in rural areas;
2) Help coffee farmers in the area to produce and improve quality;
3) Teach women about the coffee production process;
4) Improve the health of employees and the associated community.
‘Ishema’ means pride of excellence. This coffee has AB Plus certification: ‘AB’ means the beans are smaller than AA quality and ‘Plus’ means that few defects were found in the coffee when inspected. Rwanda Ishema Women’s is perfect als filter coffee van espresso.
