Café du Jour 100% arabica Rwanda
The coffee we used for the Café du Jour 100% Arabica Rwanda comes from the Muhanga district and ends up at Café du Jour through the Sholi cooperative. Sholi was originally founded as a collaboration between women who pool their capacities, together you are always strong.
At the time, there was no market for coffee beans in this region and there was no processing facility to wash the beans. With the support of Dutch foundations, the cooperative has grown and has been running its own washing facility for coffee beans since 2014.
The aroma of this bean is citrusy and spicy. The taste is reminiscent of forest fruits, cocoa, pepper and licorice.
Since the foundation of the Sholi cooperative, it has grown in a short time into a successful company with 610 members. They now have an impressive network of buyers and it is an example for other Rwandan cooperatives. They invest in other social and environmental projects for the community. For example, they contributed to a health center, water resources, loans for school fees, health insurance for members, training and support for farmers and gave each member a goat or pig as extra payment.
Café du jour Coffee beans
The coffee beans of Café du Jour's own brand are roasted on a small scale by a specialist roaster. The beans are roasted and stocked weekly, so the roasting date is always recent. The burn date is therefore noted on the label of the packaging.
