Orange, Black Tea, Dried Fruits
This coffee was processed at the Busanze washing station and grown by members of the KUN cooperative. KUN stands for Koperative Umurego Nteko and means Nteko Cooperative Force. More than half of its members are women, and women feature prominently on the KUN Board of Directors, meaning that force is largely female. This is our second annual single-origin release from KUN and Busanze.
